ATEX AND EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES - SUMMARY

Background
Explosive atmospheres can be caused by flammable gases, mists or vapours or by
                                                              with
combustible dusts. If there is enough of the substance, mixed with air, then all it needs is a
source of ignition to cause an explosion.

                                                                       2002
The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) place
                                                           explosive
duties on employers to eliminate or control the risks from explosive atmospheres in the
workplace.

What is an explosive atmosphere ?
                                                                dangerous
In DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances with
                                                         vapours,
air, under atmospheric conditions, in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dust in which, after
ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture.

Where can explosive atmospheres be found?
                                                              explosive
Many workplaces may contain, or have activities that produce, explosive or potentially
                                                             activities
explosive atmospheres. Examples include places where work activities create or release
                                                               in
flammable gases or vapours, such as vehicle paint spraying, or in workplaces handling fine
organic dusts such as grain flour or wood.

What is ATEX?
ATEX is the name commonly given to the framework for controlling explosive atmospheres
                                                              them.
and the standards of equipment and protective systems used in them. It is based on the
requirements of two European Directives.

1) Directive 99/92/EC - minimum requirements for improving the health and safety
                                                            atmospheres.
   protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.
2) Directive 94/9/EC - equipment and protective systems intended for use in
   potentially explosive atmospheres.

What does DSEAR require?
DSEAR requires employers to eliminate or control the risks from dangerous substances.

Classification of areas where explosive atmospheres may occur
                                                        atmospheres
Employers must classify areas where hazardous explosive atmospheres may occur into
zones.

Selection of equipment and protective systems
                                                              ignition.
Areas classified into zones must be protected from sources of ignition. Equipment and
protective systems intended to be used in zoned areas should be selected to meet the
                                                                 for
requirements of the Equipment and Protective Systems Intended for Use in Potentially
Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 1996. Equipment already in use before July 2003 can
                                                                 shows
continue to be used indefinitely provided a risk assessment shows it is safe to do so.
When must the workplace requirements be met?
                                                          atmospheres
The specific DSEAR requirements dealing with explosive atmospheres come into effect at
different times depending on when the workplace is first used.

                                                            explosive
The Regulations apply to all equipment intended for use in explosive atmospheres,

Manufacturers/suppliers (or importers, if the manufacturers are outside the EU) must ensure

that their products meet essential health and safety requirements and undergo appropriate

the equipment is marked by the ‘ ’

Certification ensures that the equipment or protective system is fit for its intended purpose and
that adequate information is supplied with it to ensure that it can be used safely.
