Areas where gases, vapours, mists and dusts occur in dangerous quantities are classified as hazardous areas. Therefore, precautions must be taken to ensure that when working in these areas you are adequately protected and trained, so as to reduce the likelihood of the ignition of an explosive atmosphere. People who carry out work in these areas require an understanding of the potential for ignition to occur, and appropriate control measures to ensure the safety of all personnel. Our Hazardous Areas Awareness training course addresses these issues.

This course is suitable for anyone working in a hazardous area, including cleaning staff, HSE staff, trade personnel and management.

I completed the EWP under 11 metre course yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it… Phil the instructor was brilliant. He held the class well and he spoke from experience not just from time teaching a course. He was hard but fair in the assessment practical and you kinda have to be considering the work that students will be undertaking upon their completion. Facilities were top notch and nothing was too much trouble. All staff that I came into contact with were polite and very professional! I would certainly recommend Pinnacle Safety and Training for anyone looking at completing industry specific training and certification and I will certainly use them again when choosing my next course.
