Hazardeous Area Classification & Myths

Image
Hazardous Area Classification is a critical subject in the safety role. Most of the time it is confused with the activity and responsibility. This is a vital element that needs the EHS head's attention to ensure a safe operation in the plant premises. It is very important that both electrical and chemical expertise work together for hazardous area classification and eliminate the risk. Lets us carefully explore different myths and challenges in the Hazardous Area Classification. 1Q.What is the guidance on the classification of hazardous areas? During normal and abnormal operations, electrical and electronic equipment such as motors, generators, fuses, switches, relays, circuit breakers, transformers, solenoids, and resistors produce the amount of heat, arcing, and sparking that causes a fire or explosion in industries, factories, or other locations where chemicals are manufactured, processed, or used. Because of the presence of flammable, ignitable gases, combustible or liquid
