Hazardous Area Work Permit

Identification and Classification of Hazardous Areas

Hazardous area classification is the process of systematically analyzing and classifying the environment where flammable/explosive atmospheres may occur using national or internationally recognised and approved classification techniques.

The classification process determines the extent of Zone 0, 1, 2, 20, 21 and 22 hazardous areas based on an assessment of the various grades of release applicable to the plant, equipment and fittings under review.

In addition, classification may determine the fluid and flammable/explosive atmosphere spark ignition characteristics (used to assign a gas group) and auto-ignition temperature (used to assign a temperature class), to enable the selection, installation and maintenance of suitably approved apparatus.
