Many of us associated hazardous environments with the oil and gas industries where it is common to see mandatory safety requirements for “intrinsically safe” and “explosion proof” (flame proof) equipment. Other industries including nuclear power generation, chemicals, sub-sea, mining, dusty and high temperature environments also fall within the hazardous environment category.
