These pages will tell you more about explosive atmospheres and ATEX: Atmospheric conditions are commonly referred to as ambient temperatures and pressures. Employers must provide workers who work in zoned areas ate appropriate clothing that does not create the risk of an electrostatic discharge igniting the explosive atmosphere, eg anti-static footwear.
Close table Close table. Zone 1 — A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of dangerous substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is likely to occur in richtljn operation occasionally. Please help us clarify the article. Identifying areas where explosive atmospheres may occur Where necessary, the entry points to areas classified into zones must be marked with a specified ‘EX’ sign.
The classification given to a particular zone, and its size and location, depends on the likelihood of an explosive atmosphere occurring and atexx persistence if it does. Schedule 2 of DSEAR contains descriptions of the various classifications of zones for gases and vapours and for dusts.

Equipment in use before July is allowed to be used indefinitely provided a risk assessment shows it is safe to do so. Preventing releases of dangerous substances, which can create explosive atmospheres, and preventing sources of ignition are two widely used ways of reducing the risk. The technical dossier must be kept for a period of 10 years. Zone 0 and 20 require Category 1 marked equipment, zone 1 and 21 require Category 2 marked equipment and zone 2 and 22 require Category 3 marked equipment.
