Ex/HazLoc Inspections

An onsite hazardous assessment involves a team of trained professionals visiting a specific location, such as an industrial facility, construction site, or any area where hazardous materials or conditions may be present. During the assessment, the team conducts a comprehensive evaluation of potential hazards and risks to ensure safety and compliance with regulations.

Some common components of an onsite hazardous assessment include:

  • Site InspectionThe team inspects the areas with atmospheric hazards to identify potential hazards, such as chemical storage, machinery, electrical systems, and other equipment. 
  • Documentation ReviewThey review documents related to process safety procedures, area classification drawings,certifications or listings, and any relevant permits or licenses. 
  • Hazard IdentificationThe team identifies and categorizes the Ex/Hazloc equipment in the material groups, zones or divisions, ignition temperatures, and if the items are within the certifications, standards or codes and regulatory compliance.
  • Risk AssessmentThe assessment team evaluates the level of risk associated with each identified hazard. This often involves considering the likelihood and severity of potential incidents. 
  • Report GenerationA detailed report is typically generated, summarizing the findings of the inspection and provides recommendations for mitigating hazards, improving safety and operation compliance.

Please note that the specific details and requirements of an onsite hazardous inspections can vary widely depending on the nature of the site, the industry, and local regulations. Please contact us to discuss your requirements further.

We also offer comprehensive training courses covering all aspects of ex/hazloc (explosive atmospheres/hazardous locations). This is a valuable service crucial for ensuring safety across industries like oil and gas, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, and manufacturing. These courses cover regulatory requirements from organizations like OSHA, NFPA, and IEC, hazardous area classification, equipment selection and installation including explosion-proof and intrinsically safe devices, maintenance and inspection protocols and risk assessment and mitigation strategies. By addressing these critical areas, these courses play a pivotal role in safeguarding both personnel and facilities operating in potentially hazardous environments.
