Safety Training Index
Courses covering gas explosion hazards on offshore (and onshore) facilities. It addresses all aspects of hazards associated with vapour cloud explosions (VCEs): ignition processes, release and dispersion, explosion mechanisms, blast loads and modelling of all these aspects.
These training courses have been offered around the world including Norway, UK, USA and Malaysia. These courses can broadly be divided into:
GexCon offers many training courses around the world (basic and advanced) covering the use of the CFD code FLACS for modelling ventilation, dispersion and explosion processes. Course details as well as a list of upcoming courses is given below:
A unique training course for obtaining a full understanding of the phenomenon of explosions, what effects and consequences can be expected, how to become compliant with relevant regulations while delivering a sound basis of safety to protect personnel and equipment as much as possible.
The training will benefit those who are responsible for industrial premises that fall under the DSEAR(UK) / ATEX (EU) regulations, engineers who are responsible for designing new process plants and maintaining existing installations and OEM's who are required to design equipment and processes according to the ATEX directive.
These courses are regularly offered in both UK and Norway but we it is also possible to offer them in other parts of the word.
GexCon also offers courses related to dust explosion hazards on process facilities. We also have our own dust explosion test laboratory and have a wide-ranging experience in both testing and simulations of problems related to dust explosions. The courses may cover: (1) Dust properties, (2) Explosion modelling, (3) Preventive Measures, (4) Ignition Sources, (5) Mitigation/Protective Measures, (6) Process Hazard Analysis, (7) Legislation and Standards, (8) Accidents & (9) Case Studies.
GexCon can offer tailor-made courses for your organisation in the field of gas and dust explosion safety. We can also offer large-scale explosion demonstrations at our test site outside Bergen with a lecture program organised around it.
