Hazardous areas works & compliance

Engineering & Electrical Experts in Hazardous Areas

As specialists in Hazardous Areas work and compliance, we understand the possible dangers involved in working in high-risk environments and potentially explosive areas. As such, we ensure all stakeholders’ safety when designing and installing Electrical Equipment for Hazardous Areas (EEHA). Such stakeholders include but are not limited to, our valued personnel, suppliers, contractors, and clients.

Notably, our team comprises Engineers and Electricians with industry experience in simultaneously identifying and managing risks. As such, we have extensive expertise in hazardous area installation, maintenance, inspections, and also breakdowns of explosive-protection equipment. In doing so, we hold high importance on both practical inspections and audits.

Most importantly, our services are conducted per industry, national, and also international standards. These standards include, but are not limited to:

  • National Standards including AS/NZS 60079 and AS/NZ 3000 standards
  • International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60079
  • European Regulatory Framework including International Electrotechnical Commission System for Equipment for use in Explosive Atmospheres (IECEx) and ATmosphères EXplosives (ATEX) certified equipment

As a result, our team ensures your operations are up to date with current legislation and best practice, therefore taking the stress out of Hazardous Areas compliance!

About Hazardous Areas

Are you working in a high risk area?

To explain, a hazardous area, as defined by the National Electrical Code (NEC) as:

“places where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases, flammable liquid–produced vapours, combustible liquid–produced vapours, combustible dust, or ignitable fibres or fragments present in the air in quantities sufficient to produce explosive or ignitable mixtures.”

Due to the significant environmental characteristics in these areas, it is imperative to understand what hazardous risks are nearby and to also ensure they comply with EEHA regulations. Such environmental factors include high or low temperatures, pressure, and more.

In addition, part of this understanding includes identifying the specific electrical equipment required and knowing how it should be assembled and tested according to the manufacturer’s design. As a result, this insight will minimise the risks of an explosion. Also, it involves reviewing or designing the overall operations according to regulatory standards and as such ensuring compliance across the whole system.

In short, Hazardous Areas are common in the following workplaces, for instance:

  • Coal Mines
  • Industry Production Plants i.e. Steel Production
  • Grain Handling
  • Gas Plants
  • Petrochemical Industries
  • Food Processing

As mentioned, we have a team of independent accredited professional Engineers and Electricians with the knowledge and experience to keep your plant safe. So, If you need help in managing any dangers of electrical hazards and also high-risk environments, give us a call today!
