Maritime ATEX

Explosive atmospheres in the workplace can be caused by flammable gases, mists or vapours or by combustible dusts. Explosions can cause loss of life and serious injuries as well as significant damage. As of July 2003, organisations in EU must follow the directives to protect employees from explosion risk in areas with an explosive atmosphere. There are two ATEX directives describing what equipment is allowed in an environment with an explosive atmosphere.

The ATEX directive consists of two EU directives:

1) Directive 99/92/EC (also known as 'ATEX 137' or the 'ATEX Workplace Directive') on minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres.

2) Directive 94/9/EC (also known as 'ATEX 95' or 'the ATEX Equipment Directive') on the approximation of the laws of Members States concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.
