Antaris has now become CompEx registered, evidencing our competency in explosive atmospheres.
ATEX Directive1999/92/EC, which is now transposed into Irish legislation Part 8 of the 2007 Safety Health & Welfare at Work (General Applications) Regulations is concerned with the risks from fire and explosion arising from flammable substances stored or used in the workplace.
The regulations apply to workplaces where flammable substances are stored or used for example where flammable liquids or flammable dust are present.
The regulations apply to all work equipment and protective systems which are made available at the workplace and must comply with these regulations and with the ATEX product regulations S.I. 83 of 1999.
For nearly 30 years the CompEx Scheme has been the recognised global competency scheme for the safety of workers in the oil, gas, and chemical industries. As the design and operation of plants handling flammable materials and the specification, installation, inspection and maintenance, and repair of explosion-protected equipment, are specialised activities requiring a higher level of competence than similar activities on normal industrial plants, CompEX provides a suite of training courses, depending on the level of competence required.
