The course is based on the Directive 1999/92/EC (Implemented in FHOSEX for Norway), IEC 60079-0, IEC 60079-10, EN 1127-1 and the Norwegian Petroleum Act.
The EU Directive 1992/99/EC (also known as the ATEX Workplace Directive) is about health and safety requirements for workers in explosive atmospheres. It requires that the employer develop and maintain an explosion prevention document. This document must include risk assessment, a zone chart, and documentation that all workers who will need to enter hazardous areas have received adequate and suitable training in explosion prevention. In all EU and EEA countries, this must be incorporated in national legislation.
In Norway this is implemented through the: "Regulations regarding Health and Safety in Hazardous Areas" often referred to as "FHOSEX".
Legislation pertaining to petroleum activities similarly includes competence requirements: § 9-7 Qualifications.
The licensee and others involved in petroleum activities are required to have necessary qualifications to be able to conduct the work in a satisfactory manner. Adequate training must be provided.
