About ATEX Inspections LTD

Our Co-founder Mr Ray Whitehead first became involved with explosive atmospheres in the UK coal mines back in the 1960's and was then involved in the start-up of the very first oil fields in the UK North Sea in the 1970's. Theses included the Forties, Brent and Piper fields and we know of no other company with more history or experience. Our successful track record of delivering projects on time and on budget in a safe and reliable manner has enabled us to develop long term, lasting relationships with our clients, in fact ALL Shell offshore installations in Nigeria have now been inspected by Atex Inspections Ltd and we have trained all their offshore personnel in hazardous areas.
