Hazardous area classifications and designs

September 26, 2016

In this current economic climate there are many ways that businesses look for a point of difference over there competitors, one area that is sometimes overlooked is the business’s reputation and position in the community.

If in your day to day business you deal with flammable gasses, flammable liquids or flammable solids then you probably have an area where by the storage, mixing, transfer and dispensing depending on quantities may be classified as a hazardous area. Having hazardous areas in your workplace there is an obligation to eliminate ignition sources. At Hazardous area solutions we are able to help determine whether your work place has a hazardous area zone and then help implement appropriate control measures through design, elimination and selection of equipment.

At Hazardous Area Solutions we involve the client at every stage which entails identifying sources and grades of release, define zones, prepare classification drawings, preparation of area classification report, installation of appropriate electrical equipment and compile the hazardous area dossier. All work is performed to the AS/NZS60079 series of standards which provides piece of mind for the persons or parties in control of the site and becomes a living document and platform for a safety management system for maintenance and installation work in the classified areas.
