Train your employees in ATEX risk prevention

In an ATEX area, the safety of employees and the protection of industrial equipment is a major concern. Preventing explosions is an obligation of companies, provided by Directive 1999/92/EC and the Labour Code. Making each stakeholder aware of the risks in an ATEX zone becomes essential. The workers must have a specific authorisation before working on this type of site.

      Who are our ATEX trainings for?

      The Labour Code (Art. R4227-49) also provides for obligations relating to the security of employees in the ATEX zone and the site in general. It must implement the appropriate measures (zoning, marking, monitoring, etc.) and the necessary technical means on its site. The drafting of a DRPCE (document on explosion protection) is also mandatory. To enable employees to practise safely, the employer must train and educate them in the protection against explosive hazards.

      Workers in ATEX areas must have taken specific training. This allows them to identify ATEX zones, assess their risks and react effectively in case of danger. ATEX training is intended for anyone working in a risk area. It is aimed at all sectors of activity, regardless of the size of the company, as long as they involve the storage or handling of flammable products (gases, dusts, vapours...). Different organisations offer training adapted to the nature of the hazards of the activity and the needs of each company. After the training, an authorisation is issued to the workers.

      Authorisations necessary to work in ATEX area

      Persons working in an ATEX zone are required to hold a clearance. This depends on the area of intervention and the level of danger. To obtain this authorisation, each worker must undergo ATEX training.

      What is an ATEX clearance ?

      ATEX clearance is a certificate issued by an approved training organisation. It certifies a worker’s ability to perform work related to an ATEX zone in a safe and standard manner. The worker has the choice of training to intervene in zone 0, zone 1 or zone 2. At the end of his training, he will obtain the corresponding clearance at the level he has chosen. This certificate is valid for three years. The worker will need to complete a refresher training to renew his or her clearance.

      Each level of danger corresponds to a clearance. In general, however, training enables workers to learn the basics of ATEX regulations. They know, at the end of the training, the requirements related to securing people and equipment on an ATEX area. They will also have to adopt the right gestures and detect a risk of explosion, depending on the level of the chosen area.
