Price: $2,999.00 Length: 3 Days Intrinsic Safety Training by TONEX Intrinsic Safety Training by TONEX covers all aspects of Intrinsic safety principals and prevention techniques and methods to avoid and prevent explosions from occurring. Learn about Intrinsic Safety ATEX Directives, IECEx, NEX,CSA, MSHA and OSHA guidelines and how to ensure that the energy transferred to a hazardous area and location is controlled and is well below the levels to trigger an explosion. Intrinsically Safe (I.S.) is usually used as a term to describe products destined for a possible explosive area. “Intrinsically Safe� (IS) and Nonincendive are also referring to protection levels for safe operation of electronic equipment in various explosive atmospheres. The hazardous location ratings are also divided into Class, Division, and Group to indicate the existence of flammable gases or vapors, ignitable dust, fibers, or filings under normal or unlikely conditions of operation to be used in safe operation in hazardous areas, particularly around petro-chemicals, flammable gasses and dusts.

Why use TONEX for intrinsic safety training? Intrinsic Safety Training course is designed to teach you how to plan, analyze, design, test, verify & validate, and document effectively, and get ready certification. Intrinsic safety is considered as a requirement that may be applicable to devices that are being operated in areas with flammable gases or fuels. An intrinsically safe piece of equipment won’t ignite flammable gases.
