Are you involved in designing or applying electrical equipment for service in hazardous areas? We are looking for a number of speakers to present papers at this important industry event.

This conference has been created to meet and exchange ideas for those concerned with the safe use of electrical equipment and instrumentation in hazardous, flammable or explosive atmospheres, thus preventing accidents and injuries in the workplace.

It will serve to highlight technologies, best practices, and accelerate improvements in standards and regulations. It will also reduce the economic impact of accidents through the prevention of explosions and fires due to ignition of flammable vapours
or dust clouds. You will be sharing your experience and know-how with engineers, technicians and other technical professionals who are all eager to eliminate accidents and injuries in the workplace.

The conference will present an industry-wide forum to examine and discuss the latest local and international practices and standards in hazardous areas. Hear from, meet with and network with other colleagues working in this fast developing area. The event will also provide opportunities for participants to discuss their experiences and applications.

The overall objective of this conference is to share best practices and new technologies in hazardous areas. We are especially seeking papers on case studies and practical applications.

Suggested Topics:
· Zones and definitions
· Classification of apparatus
· Apparatus grouping and temperature
· Electrical hazards, earthing, bonding and testing
