Why CompEx training at PROCAT?

Dangerous substances can put people’s safety at risk from fire and explosion. Dangerous substances are any substances used or present at work that could, if not properly controlled, cause harm to people as a result of a fire or explosion. This includes things such as solvents, paints, varnishes, flammable gases like liquid petroleum gas (LPG), as well as dust from machining and sanding operations or dust from foodstuffs, like flour.

CompEx stands for competence in explosive atmospheres. It is an internationally recognised Health and Safety qualification for people working in explosive and dusty environments. CompEx competency validation is most relevant and essential to those involved in the design, selection, installation, inspection and maintenance of gas and vapour equipment.

Over 62,000 CompEx Core Competence Certificates have been issued to delegates world-wide, making CompEx the world’s most widely recognised and accepted hazardous area competence qualification. PROCAT is a JTL accredited CompEx Training Centre. All our instructors are industry specialists with years of occupational and training experience.
