Do we need a compliant hazardous area installation?

New Installations & Refurbishments

Yes. If you are installing processors or plants which will use, or have a by-product of flammable materials, the Local Electrical Authorities will inspect the installation for compliance with the AS60079 series.

If compliance is not met, the Authorities/H Class Inspector will not allow the process or plant to be energised as it would not be safe to do so. It is critical to have the hazardous area classifier and designer engaged as part of the early design process to limit costs involved in conforming to the standards.

Existing Installations

Yes. Under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 it is the responsibility of a person conducting a business or undertaking at a workplace to keep their workers safe and prevent a potentially catastrophic event from occurring. If a hazardous area accident occurred and the employer had reasonably practicable means of preventing it, the employer is liable under the act.

Under the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 there is a specific section relating to hazardous atmosphere and ignition sources. The regulation states that a person conducting a business or undertaking at a workplace must;

  • manage risks to health and safety associated with a hazardous atmosphere at the workplace
  • manage risks to health and safety associated with an ignition source in a hazardous atmosphere at the workplace.
