Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to do Hazardous Areas (EEHA) refreshers?

The associated standard ‘AS/NZS 60079.14’ states that appropriate continuing education or training shall be undertaken by personnel on a regular basis.

What level of HA training do I need?

Are you a general worker who may be required to enter a hazardous area? 1-day Hazardous Areas (EEHA) Awareness Course

Are you required to install, inspect, report, and maintain electrical equipment in hazardous areas? EEHA - Installation, Maintenance and Detailed Inspection - 5 day course

Are you required to conduct detailed inspections only? EEHA - Detailed Inspection - 1 day course

Do I need a Certificate IV in Hazardous Areas to do work in hazardous areas?

There is no requirement in standards or legislation that states that you need to have a Certificate IV in Hazardous areas to work in hazardous areas. What is required, is that any work conducted in a hazardous area must be carried out by competent workers for the type of hazards in the facility.

How often do I need to do hazardous area refreshers?

As above, this is usually risk-managed by the owner/occupier of the asset.

However, common industry practice is for hazardous area-trained electricians to attend refreshers no less than every 3 years.

If I'm supervising hazardous area workers, do I need to be competent myself?

Supervisors who are not required to carry out work on or in hazardous areas do not need to be themselves trained. However, we recommend that an EEHA Awareness course is taken.

What do I need to attend refresher training?

You need to have been previously issued with hazardous area competencies to attend an EEHA Refresher course. This course will update you on any changes to legislation, standards or industry practice. Any obsolete competencies you had been issued will be replaced by the current unit.

You will only be issued with the units you already have, that is, no new units will be issued.
