NEC Area Classification
A major safety concern in industrial plants is the occurrence of fires and explosions. No other aspect of industrial safety receives more attention in the form of codes, standards, technical papers, and engineering design. Regulatory bodies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have established systems that classify locations which exhibit potentially dangerous conditions to the degree of hazard presented.
This course presents an overview of the National Electric Code area classifications for hazardous locations. It includes definitions of hazards, area classifications and divisions, and provides examples of suitable protective measures and required markings.
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 2 PDH credits.
