                  The objective of this Workshop is to provide delegates with a working knowledge of all aspects of
usage, testing,   gas detection principles, fixed gas detection system functionality and portable gas detection product
maintenance and selection. This will include discussion of gas hazard incidents and gas detection system critical
design of gas     performance criteria. Certification issues will also be discussed covering the methods of protection
                  for electrical equipment to be used in potentially flammable atmospheres under the terms of the
detection systems ATEX directive.
