New edition of EEMUA 'Ex' handbook

01 May 2014

EEMUA has published the sixth edition of EEMUA Publication 186, "A Practitioner's Handbook for explosive atmospheres". This latest edition provides a significant update on previous editions, and includes new chapters on mechanical and application design engineering considerations.

EEMUA 186 offers guidance for improving safety in potentially explosive atmospheres, in areas such as petroleum and petrochemical plants, processing industries, power plants, offshore platforms, fuel filling stations, water and wastewater industries, and more, when the failure to adopt safe working practices could result in the ignition of flammable gases or combustible dust.

EEMUA 186 is closely associated with the CompEx® scheme which determines core competency for safe working in potentially hazardous, flammable or explosive atmospheres by checking both the underpinning knowledge and practical skills and attributes of candidates.

EEMUA Publication 186 is available to purchase directly from EEMUA through the Shop. Alternatively orders can be placed by emailing, or by contacting the Sales Department on + 44 (0)207 488 0801.
