SHELL has chosen KMS energy academy to provide a company specific ATEX training program for its operators at the Pernis site. ATEX derives its name from the French title of the 94/9/EC directive: Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosives. As of July 2003, organizations in EU must follow the directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere.
Our training program is developed in close cooperation with our partner Tauw European Consultants and Engineers. Not only will we include site specific processes, installations and regulative information, we will enrich the training experience even further with site specific footage. Furthermore all acquired knowledge will be retained through an online learning environment in which the operators practice real life cases with ATEX aspects in them.
KMS energy consultancy is asked by Energiebedrijf VU/VUmc to perform a risk assessment (Explosie Veiligheid Document) in those areas where hazardous explosive atmospheres may occur. In close cooperation with our partner Van Onzen Industrial Automation we will execute this assessment in compliance to the ATEX 137 directive for existing power generation units.
Enegiebedrijf VU/VUmc provides energy for the Vrije Universiteit (VU), the Vrije Universiteit Medisch Centrum (VUmc) and parts of the Facilitaire Campus Organisatie of the Vrije Univesiteit.
