Here’s Part 2 of our Guide to CompEx.

If you missed part 1, you can read it here first.


Which industries require protection?
Some workplaces are clearly hazardous, such as:

• Oil rigs
• Petrochemical plants
• Chemical plants
• Gasworks

Others may be less obvious, such as petrol stations, distilleries or saw mills. In 2015, a wood treatment company in the Midlands suffered a devastating series of explosions in which four people died. It was reported that flammable materials kept on site included heating oil and kerosene, but also wood flour, which is used for laminate flooring and is highly combustible.

Why has AES decided to invest in CompEx certification?
Not all electrical engineers are CompEx certified – it’s a challenging test – so what led to AES choosing to go down this path?

First, it’s important to have this certification if AES staff are to work in potentially hazardous or explosive environments. AES has a duty of care to its staff and safety is always a primary concern.

Second, putting employees through the CompEx course is seen as an investment in both the staff and the company, helping staff with CPD and allowing AES to work in sectors that it might otherwise not be able to go into.
