COMP’Ex’ is the national training and assessment scheme for electro-technical crafts personnel who work in potentially explosive atmospheres.
Potentially explosive atmospheres occur in many industries such as onshore and offshore petrochemical and refining plants. They may also be found in distilleries, paint shops, flour mills, woodworking shops and petrol stations. Failure to ensure safe and efficient working practises in these areas could result in ignition of the explosive gas or dust cloud resulting in injury or even death.
COMP’Ex’ is a national joint training initiative developed and implemented by the Engineering Equipment and Material Users Association (EEMUA) and JTL and is supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
