MAIL IN REGISTRATION FORM
NO ONLINE RESERVATIONS – PLEASE PRINT AND MAIL THIS FORM-
In North America, the most widely used hazardous location classification system is defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Publication 70, National Electric Code (NEC) in Articles 500 to 506. The type of hazardous substances that is or may be present in the air in quantities sufficient to produce explosive or ignitable mixtures is specified. This program is developed to improve participant’s ability to use NFPA codes and Standard to recognize and reduce the hazards of employing electrical equipment in classified areas. The seminar will be broken down into two Modules within 1 day.
Each On-Site Seminar Participant Will Receive:
- Copy of:
- National Electric Code (NEC), 2017
- NFPA 496: Purged and Pressurized Enclosures for Electrical Equipment
- NFPA 497: Recommended Practice for the Classification of Flammable Liquids, Gases, or Vapors and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas
- NFPA 499: Recommended Practice for the Classification of Combustible Dusts and of Hazardous (Classified) Locations for Electrical Installations in Chemical Process Areas
- Continental Breakfast
- Full Plated Lunch (Vegetarian Lunch is Available per Requests)
- Break Snacks and Beverages
