Work­ing in po­ten­tially ex­plo­sive ar­eas?

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Those with re­spon­si­bil­ity for an ex­plo­sive or haz­ardous work area, won’t want to miss a one-day seminar in Christchurch in Septem­ber.

Some of the world’s top ex­perts on the use of elec­tri­cal equip­ment in haz­ardous ar­eas – the IECEx com­mit­tee – are meet­ing in Christchurch 14 – 18 Sep and their skills and knowl­edge will be avail­able at an open seminar.

Do you know what you don’t know? This will cover top­ics rang­ing from what the law re­quires of you, to how to save money and re­main safe, to work­ing safely with haz­ardous dust.

Stan­dards New Zealand, which or­gan­ised the seminar, says it will be in­valu­able for any­one who has re­spon­si­bil­ity for elec­tri­cal equip­ment in in­dus­tries such as oil and gas, paint, min­ing, elec­tric­ity sup­ply, pro­cess­ing, fire and pro­tec­tion, ports, milling, and so on.

The IECEx cer­ti­fi­ca­tion scheme en­ables New Zealand com­pa­nies to buy equip­ment from any num­ber of world­wide com­pa­nies who sup­ply through the scheme and know that it is com­pli­ant and safe, with­out the need to have the equip­ment retested in New Zealand.

New Zealand has no elec­tri­cal equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties so we rely heav­ily on the use of the IECEx cer­ti­fied equip­ment to com­ply with haz­ardous ar­eas leg­is­la­tion. The scheme is an es­sen­tial com­po­nent of the New Zealand in­fra­struc­ture in this area.

The seminar will take place at the Chateau on the Park ho­tel
