Transfer of Knowledge on Explosion Protection

Explosions do not happen often, but the consequences can be devastating. One explosion can cause many fatalities, an ecological disaster, and the company's collapse.

We transfer the knowledge on explosion prevention when reviewing planned and performed explosion protection measures, e.g. in the facilities of the chemical, pharmaceutical, food, and wood industry, as well as in petrol stations, gas stations, chemical, fuel, and grain warehouses, and at SIQ seminars on explosion protection, performed at the our own Ex-lecture room and at our client's sites.

We transfer expert knowledge and experiences gained by working in more than a thousand facilities with a high risk of explosion, in our test laboratories, and through international collaborations with EU notified bodies, global schema for testing and IECEx certification, international work group for Ex at the International Social Security Association, and the European and global work group IEC for  electrostatics IEC TC31/101 JWG29.

At our seminars, we also use video animations that are very graphic and prepared on the basis of mathematical solutions with various physical models for specific real-world situations. At seminars for closed groups, we tailor the program to the technology and explosion risk of the facility of participants we transfer knowledge to and the participant's task type. Usually, a successful explosion protection is the responsibility of multiple coworkes that are assigned different tasks. Knowledge is key here.

About the author

Dr. Zdravko Kramar, Head of Explosion Protection department, concluded his research with a PhD in chemical science. Soon after, he started managing the explosion protection section and has done so for a quarter of a century.He has held numerous lectures in Slovenia and is also the author of several conference papers for lectures held in Germany. In addition to explosion protection and children, his great pleasure is growing his own food without using any pesticides and chemical fertilisers.
