If you’re looking for a go-to safety resource, make sure you order the latest edition of the EEMUA 186 – A Practitioner’s Handbook for Potentially Explosive Atmospheres.
The handbook offers essential guidance for safe installation, inspection and maintenance work in potentially explosive atmospheres, and is based on the requirements of international and European standards, directives and regulations.
Now in its seventh edition, the handbook features the latest versions of the relevant standards, particularly the fifth (2013) editions of IEC 60079-14 and 60079-17. The relevant parts of these standards have been interpreted and brought together in one clear, understandable, and easily navigable resource.
If you are completing a CompEx course you will find this an invaluable resource.
