  • Velosi is conducting online training for Hazardous Area Classification Course.

    Hazardous area classification (HAC) is a method of evaluating and classifying work locations within industrial facilities to reduce the risk of fires or explosions and keep dangerous work environments safe. By identifying the areas vulnerable to fire or explosion, HAC helps organizations protect people, plants and equipment. As part of a risk assessment system, HAC is used in a wide range of industries from chemical plants to food processors or power generation. To conduct HACs effectively, organizations need to obtain an in-depth understanding of the processes involved and the equipment commonly used.

    This Velosi Hazardous Area Classification Training course provides participants with basic knowledge about how facilities which handle or process flammable materials are classified into zones and how those zones affect planning and design decisions for electrical installations. Participants will gain an understanding of the core principles of hazardous area classification and up-to-date industry standards and codes of practice with regards to HAC (including IEC 60079-10-1, EI 15 and IGEM/SR/25).

  • By completing this course, participants will be able to:

    • understand international codes and recommended practices for HAC,
    • classify hazardous areas following standard practices,
    • plan electrical installations for hazardous areas,
    • apply basic principles of protection in explosive atmospheres, and
    • conduct and document an HAC.
  • Training will be conducted via Microsoft Team Meeting, online. Meeting invites will be shared on the day before the first day of training.

  • This is a three-day course from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (Dubai Time)

    • Presentation Slides
    • Training Recordings
    • Study References
  • Upon successful completion of training, participants will receive a “Hazardous Area Classification Course Completion” certificate.

  • This course is intended for Plant managers, electrical/ maintenance engineers who are leading or participating in the classification of potentially explosive atmospheres and the planning and design of electrical systems and installations in those atmospheres. Typical participants include personnel who work in the chemical & processing industries with an interest in HSE, process safety, and process design.
