Inspections & Remediation

BLEP offer a full array of inspection and documentation services for vapours, gases, mists and dusts.

Supplier Quality Surveillance

Our Supplier Quality Surveillance (SQS) team can be engaged to avoid rework associated with the receival of project components and vendor supplied equipment that turns out to be deficient.

Why Use Us?

Hazardous area equipment and systems for the Oil & Gas, LNG, Petrochemical industries and in particular Combustible Dusts built overseas often face significant compliance hurdles when they arrive as manufactures may have underestimated how rigidly Australian regulators enforce standards compliance which can lead to costly rework being required

Hazardous Area Classification

BLEP can  conduct Hazardous Area Classifications  any Australian (ASNZS 60079) or international standards (IEC 60079)

Portfolio Projects

Electrical Safety 

Queensland Electrical Safety Regulation

The Queensland Electrical Safety Regulation requires all electrical installations located in a hazardous area to be inspected by an accredited auditor before being initially connected or re-connected to a source of supply.

To become an accredited auditor a person must show an understanding of the Electrical Safety Act and relevant standards, knowledge of principles associated with classification of hazardous areas, suitability of electrical equipment in a hazardous area, and the specific installation requirements for various explosion protection techniques.
