As such, as we look towards the initial draft of the 18th edition, it may come as no surprise that, among other things, optimising safety standards and negating the risk of electric shock, fires or other dangers presented by faulty and inadequately installed electrics will remain a core focus. Here, Mahendra Mistry, Technical Manager for Electrical Systems at Bureau Veritas, tells you what you need to know.

Specifying explosion-proof connectors

Specifying explosion-proof connectors
  The threat of explosion is real in many industrial applications, from petrochemical refineries and cleaning facilities to flour silos and even landfill sites. While explosion is a hazard anywhere there is a flammable substance in the atmosphere in the form of gas, vapour or dust, the presence of the flammable substance on its own is not enough to trigger an explosion.
