Methods of Protection in Hazardous (Explosion Risk) Locations: Containment, Segregation and Prevention (with Intrinsic Safety)
In order to reduce the risk of explosion, elimination of one or more of the components of the ignition triangle is necessary. There are three basic methods of protection—explosion containment, segregation and prevention.

Medium voltage indicators (2K-43KVolts) offer positive benefits because they keep workers away from voltage and provide an answer to the 'Is there voltage?' question.
While some companies are slowly seeing the financial benefits of investing in safety, other companies view safety as an encumbering and expensive task.
ISA submitted ISA-12.12.01, "Nonincendive Electrical Equipment for Use in Class I and II, Division 2 and Class III, Divisions 1 and 2 Hazardous (Classified) Locations," for ANSI approval.
Developed for contractors, industrials, OEMs, inspectors, and educators, the materials provide a training resource to help electrical industry workers comply with the latest NEC and industry standards; select and apply overcurrent protective devices; determine fault current levels; and analyze and improve electrical system performance and stability. Publications and e-training are available on line.
Designed for classroom based instruction, the one-hour presentation provides critical training for attendees on how to prevent serious electrical injuries. Particular emphasis is placed on teaching the dangers of arc flash and arc blast -- two highly destructive occurrences that can erupt with explosive force.
Safety light curtains are an advanced method of safeguarding personnel around many hazardous machines. Also called light screens, optical guards, and presence sensing devices, safety light curtains offer freedom, flexibility and reduced operator fatigue when compared with traditional guarding methods such as mechanical barriers, sliding gates and pull-back restraints.
