News Spotlight The forgotten standard: Why we can no longer ignore BS EN 80079-36

ATEX 95 (94/9/EC) & 137 (99/92/EC) required that organisations in the EU should follow the directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere.

Our Team

Kate Smith

Kate Birchall

Systems Consultancy Manager


Kate joined the QEM team in 2012. Having graduated with a degree in Management from the University of Southampton in 2009 she quickly (and unwittingly!) moved into the construction industry, and has since worked on a number of high profile projects in the oil and gas sector.

Kate's now with QEM as our Systems Manager where she develops, implements and manages many of our client's management systems using our intelligent software solutions. Alongside that, she also helps manage the marketing and social media with the two Rob's. She's highly organised and writes lists for everything, but it definitely helps when it comes to assisting our clients with their management systems.

Outside of work, Kate's main interests are horse riding, baking and going out with the girls. She has sadly come to terms that her childhood aspiration of showjumping in the Olympics was maybe a little overambitious, but she still enjoys a good gallop through the countryside of a weekend. Kate's baking habit makes her very popular in the office, keeping QEM and our clients well fed - she will take cake requests, so keep that in mind!
