A Pyroban Forklift from Trucks Direct UK LTD
A wide range of industries are at risk from flammable gas, vapours, powders, dusts and chemicals. These companies should all be aware that there is a risk of an explosive atmosphere being generated during a normal working day.
Diesel and Electric industrial vehicles are required to work in these areas but are a potential source of ignition. The consequences of ignition may be disastrous, potentially resulting in the destruction of a site. This means that employers have a number of obligations based on an assessment of the risks involved.
However, sources of ignition may be eliminated by effective Explosion Protection.
