One or more hazardous areas exist in every plant. Operators can avoid fire and explosion incidents by following proper design rules and anticipate how the power plant will be utilized to prevent electrical triggers from causing damage. At Stonehouse Process Safety, we specialize in quantifying electrical safety risks and helping our valued clients reduce them to an acceptable level via our process safety consulting services.

Hazardous (Electrical) Area Classification

What is Electrical Area Classification?

In industrial facilities, special focus is required when it comes to handling electrical equipment. Electrical sparks can be generated from faulty cables or other components. These sparks can then trigger runaway fires and ignite explosive atmospheres. The risk of explosions and fires is a major concern for sites where combustible dusts, vapors, gases, or flammable liquids are present. Every organization must be vigilant to ensure that they have measures in place to guard against that threat.
