Hazardous Area Classification

Lithium Electrical are experts in hazardous area classification procedures for all dust and gas environments.

Adhering to AS/NZS 60079, we will accurately assess and classify areas where flammable gases, vapours, mist or any dust hazards may arise.

“The responsibility for classification of a hazardous area rests with the persons or parties in control of the installation. The requirements are contained within AS/NZS 60079.10.1 for gas and vapour and AS/NZS 60079.10.2 for combustible dusts.” AS/NZS 3000-2007 Clause

Prior to commencing the classification, Lithium Electrical can assess your installation site and reduce the size of the classified areas by substituting chemicals, implementing control measures and designing ventilation where appropriate. This process can reduce the cost of installation and maintenance and improve safety.
