Ex-markings for electrical equipment

Do you sometimes work in potentially hazardous areas? Is the equipment you're using certified for where it's being used?
How do you read the marking plate? Are you up to date on the latest developments in Ex-markings for electricians?

Ex-equipment markings can be confusing, but this is an area where it's vital you stay updated. This is why we have created a new course explaining the markings on Ex equipment in a way you can easily understand.

Who needs this course?

If you are doing electrical work in potentially hazardous areas, you must have the knowledge and skills needed to do the job safely. Both for your own safety and that of those around you. You need to know the equipment you are using is certified for the area where it's going to be used or installed.

This information is given on the equipment's marking plate, but there are frequent revisions to the standards for how the equipment needs to be marked. In this course on Ex-equipment markings for electricians you learn about the most recent standards, and much more.

This means you must stay updated on what Ex-equipment markings actually mean. We can help you learn this!

Ex-markings for mechanical equipment

Labeling of Ex equipment can be difficult to understand. Still, keeping up to date is one of the most important things. Therefore, we have created a course that explains the labeling of mechanical Ex-equipment in an easy-to-understand way.

Who needs this course?

Do you work in areas with gas or dust that can be explosive? Do you work with installation and maintenance of pumps, gears, brakes, hydraulics or compressed air driven equipment or rotating parts that can create friction or sparks?

The course is based on the ISO standards on Ex-marking of equipment, and will help to document competence, which is required by law to be done for everyone who is to work in an Ex area in FHOSEX §9 and §14.

The course is suitable for electrical personnel, mechanics, instrument personnel, craftsmen, equipment suppliers, sandblowers, plumbers, engineering personnel and all other occupational groups who are to carry out their work in hazardous areas.

What will you learn?

The course will ensure that you will be able to read and understand nameplates, and thus identify areas of use and ways in which the equipment is protected.

You will understand how numbers and letters on the nameplate are related to zoning and gas or dust in your workplace.
