Safe working in hazardous areas has both a human dimension - knowledge and competence - and a physical dimension - use of suitable equipment and materials. EEMUA's seminar on 28 April 2016, "What's hot in hazardous areas?", aims to bring the two together in focussing on some areas of known difficulty. The day will be of particular interest to practitioners and duty holders with a responsibility for specifying and approving installations in hazardous areas. Progamme details and how to register are available on the event page of the website.
