Course overview

This award-winning online course, delivered in partnership with BPE, comprises of four modules, each between 60-90 minutes in length, examines the causes and prevention of explosive atmospheres and the requirements of the European ATEX directives and the associated IEC and ISO standards.

The ATEX directives form the legal requirements in the EU and cover the minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres and are an approximation of the laws of EU Member States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres. Similar regulation exists in many countries outside Europe and the IEC and ISO standards are globally applicable.

This course uses a ten-step approach to consider all of the requirements for dust explosion risk reduction whether these are covered by regulations or the IEC/ISO standards.

The modules are effective as stand-alone training sessions or as part of a modular programme.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this course, you will understand:

  • the definition and causes of explosive atmospheres
  • the ATEX directive and IEC/ISO standards
  • the ten-step approach to managing risk and the eight-point are clarification methodology
  • sources of ignition and how to manage them

Who is it for?

Safety engineers, managers and all staff responsible for ensuring compliance with the ATEX regulations.

What do you get?

  • downloads of all modules (usually an hour each)
  • most modules have a FAQ section at the end 
  • digital copies of slides and supporting materials (PDF) 
  • e-certificate of attendance, including hours allocation for CPD purposes (on request)
