GUIDELINES FOR THE PREVENTION OF DANGER IN EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES WITH EXAMPLES

The Guidelines apply to the assessment of danger of explosion when handling materials which can form dangerously explosive atmospheres, and the selection and implementation of measures of protection to prevent such dangers. Handling includes manufacture, processing, destruction, storage and transloading as well as conveyance by vehicles, in pipelines or by other means. These guidelines are not by themselves adequate for an assessment of measures for the prevention of danger from explosive mixtures under other than atmospheric conditions (such as increased pressure or temperature) or with reagents other than air as well as from chemically unstable materials.
