In order to avoid explosions, the first requirement is to control or exclude, as far as possible, the formation of a flammable atmosphere and, secondly, to eliminate or reduce to an acceptably low level of probability the means of ignition. As applicable to tanker-terminal operations, this paper seeks to discuss the classification of hazardous areas in regard to the probability of the occurrence of flammable atmospheres, to give the background of the OTTSG approach to classification, and to discuss the application of the recommendations in the Guide to cargo handling.
