This three-day training course will provide delegates with training on the Energy Institute Model Safe Code of Practice 15, Area Classification for Installations Handing Flammable Fluids (EI15). This internationally recognised publication provides methodologies for carrying out Hazardous Area Classification (HAC) studies on installations where flammable fluids are processed, stored or handled.
About Hazardous Area Classification
HAC is the assessed division of a facility where releases of flammable liquids and gases can occur, either intentionally or accidentally, into hazardous areas and non-hazardous areas. The EI15 guidance is relevant to all industry sectors where the classification of potential flammable zones is a requirement.
In this course, delegates will learn how to identify areas where flammable zones can arise and how to subsequently control these ignition sources, a fundamental strategy to any organisation’s process safety management.
Key benefits of the Energy Institute’s Hazardous Area Classification training:
Who is the training for?
Introduction to legislation and standards
Properties of flammable materials
Key area classification concepts
Techniques of area classification
Impact of external variables to area classification
Throughout the course, there will be the opportunity for the delegates to practice the techniques on a real world example. A detailed practical exercise will be completed to reinforce the learning from each section of the training. This practical element will help translate the learning into a real world scenario.
