Webinar Recording: Calibration and Inspections in Hazardous Areas

 

This ISA webinar on calibration considerations in hazardous areas was presented by Cameron Kamrani, PE, PMP, LEED AP, and Ned Espy and Roy Tomalino of Beamex.

 

There are many aspects to consider before you enter a hazardous (Ex) area to perform calibrations or inspections, such as the rating of the area (zone or division) and the equipment you use. Learn about hazardous area classifications, important considerations and techniques to ensure compliance and safety, and see demonstrations of a calibration and inspection in a hazardous area.
