Area Classification

DSEAR requires site owners to classify their hazardous locations in the form of a suitable drawing, an example is shown below

Area Classification Drawing Example

Area Classification

Small quantities of dangerous goods can be found in most workplaces.

Whatever they are used for, the storage and use of such goods poses a serious hazard unless basic safety principles are followed.

If you have these substances present

What you need to do...

Then you must
 

  • be aware of the hazards of various types of flammable substance;

  • be aware of the basic standards, which apply to safe handling and storage of flammable substances;

  • introduce procedures to prevent accidents and protect people from the hazards of flammable substances;

  • find more detailed information when you need it.


There is an enormous variety of flammable substances to be found in the workplace.

They range from the obvious, e.g. petrol, paint thinners, welding gases and heating fuels, to the not so obvious, e.g. packaging materials, dusts from woodworking and dusts from food stuffs such as flour and sugar etc

To achieve this we recommend following the five main safety vices or principles below

Ventilation  -  Ignition  -  Containment  -  Exchange  -  Separation

Atex Compliance

Typical equipment synopsis


Equipment designed, and, where necessary, equipped with additional special means of protection affording a high level of protection.

For use in surface installations endangered by flammable gas, mist and/or combustible dust


Most must remain functional, usually even in the event of incidents relating to equipment even with an explosive atmosphere ispresent .

Appropriate protection concepts have been developed over many years to suit many industrial situations, for both a gaseous and dusty environment.

Further details regarding equipment protetion concepts can be found here..
