Whether you are a manufacturer with a product used in explosive atmospheres or an employer with potentially explosive atmospheres on your premises Conformance can assist you with our explosion risk assessment service. We help all types of manufacturers and employers, large and small. Manufacturers are required to complete an Explosion Risk Assessment for the ATEX Equipment Directive 2014/34/EU and employers must complete an Explosion Risk Assessment for the ATEX worker directive 1999/92/EC (known as DSEAR in the UK).

Our team of explosion safety experts are ready to help you navigate the ATEX Explosion Risk Assessment process for your product or workplace:

  • Free initial consultation to assess your requirements and plan the assessment.
  • Identify the directives and standards which apply.
  • Identify and record the substances that present an explosion hazard and their properties
  • Complete an explosion hazard “area classification”

- listing “sources of release” where hazardous substances may be released from equipment deliberately or accidentall

- defining the “zones” where they may mix with air and form an explosive atmosphere.

  • Complete an “Ignition Risk Assessment”

- identifying and analysing the ignition hazards such as sparks and hot parts that could ignite the explosive atmospheres
