Press release -


These days, the professional training company, Trainor, launches the course Safe Behaviour in hazardous areas. “We want to create a comprehensive learning experience” says Kåre Vegar Sund and Sverre Isaksen, respectively Team Leader E-learning and Senior Instructor.

Many more than electrical personnel work in hazardous areas, with potential explosive atmosphere due to flammable gas, vapour, mist or dust. What they all have in common is that they must be able to document adequate training in explosion protection. Trainor’s new course, developed with gaming technology, uses 3D graphics and cinematic tools to convey explosion theory, risk assessment, storytelling and preventative measures in a real-world and modern educational way.

Design for non-electrical personnel

The course is developed in collaboration with a reference group from the industry itself and is suitable for both onshore and offshore industry. The main target group is non-electrical personnel who must have access to or carry out work in areas that are potentially explosive, such as an oil platform, processing plant, refinery, distillery, tanker, silo, gas station or anyplace that may present an explosive atmosphere due to gas, liquid or dust.

Regulatory Compliance

For anyone who is to work in an area that is classified as hazardous, the law usually requires that you have training in hazards that can occur in such areas, and how to perform your work safely. 

In Europe requirements for training for all personnel working in hazardous areas is described in Directive 1999/92/EC of the European Parliament, Annex II, Article 1.1, and is implemented in national regulations in each member state of EU or EEC.

The course Safe behaviour in hazardous areas provides theoretical introduction with tasks along the way. Course certificates are given after passing the final test and are valid documentation of completed training according to the requirements. The course lasts for 45 minutes and can be completed on PC, tablet or mobile.
