In todays challenging world of potentially explosive atmospheres, the requirements of health and safety become more and more demanding but we can provide a total solution to your hazardous area Ex inspections. Our inspections will result in a complete and comprehensive inspection of all installed Ex equipment by experienced, qualified inspectors. Each inspection will result in a complete inventory of all installed equipment (the Ex register) along with a separate report for each piece of equipment detailing its location, suitability for the zone, Ex details and its condition.


Our team are fully committed to providing service excellence and value for money in ensuring our clients legal obligations are met and full compliance with IEC is acheived. Only then can a duty holder / asset owner have confidence in Ex equipment and systems under their control.


Ex stands for Explosion Protection and that is exactly what it does. IT PREVENTS EXPLOSIONS and therefore should only ever be trusted to trained, qualified, experienced personnel to decide if it is safe or not.
