– Help in characterizing the ATEX risk for your flammable substances “Combustible gases, steam and dust” (Source IEC / EN60079-20)
-Identification of the locations where ATEX can form, and help in the classification and dimensioning in zones of these locations (Source IEC / EN60079-10)
-Selection of new electrical or non-electrical equipment to be installed in ATEX zones including the technical specificities linked to the activities (external influences: temperature, vibrations, pressure, UV, marine environment, etc.) (Source IEC / EN60079-14)
– Adequacy of electrical and non-electrical equipment installed in ATEX zones already installed in order to define the corrective actions required: maintenance plan, replacement / work budget, photo report, detailed inspection (Source IEC / EN60079-17)
-Identification of ignition sources of electrical, electrostatic, mechanical and process-related origins (Source EN1127-1)
-Assistance in the development of your document relating to explosion protection (DRPCE) and integration of this into the single document required by the labor code (identification of risks at workstations).
-Define a risk / explosion prevention action plan based on the results obtained during the risk assessment.
-Training of personnel subject to ATEX risks in accordance with regulatory requirements
