ATEX (EX000) Basic training
The ATEX directive prescribes how all work equipment and workplaces in explosion-hazardous areas must comply in order to be able to work safely. ATEX stands for ATmosphères EXplosibles and includes two European guidelines for working in and with potentially explosive atmospheres. Explosion hazard occurs when combustible gases, vapour, mist or substances mix. If this mixture comes into contact with oxygen or an ignition source such as fire, it may cause an explosion. It is therefore not without reason that the European Union has created these directives with the main aim of guaranteeing safety in the working and living environment! It is necessary to instruct employees so that they can demonstrably and responsibly work safely.
