Intrinsically safe design consulting
Hazardous Locations Design Consulting


Typically, hazardous locations standards do not stand alone. Instead, they are part of a complex web of safety standards, and rely upon other standards for items such as basic electrical and fire safety.

As a result, certification to "ordinary" standards is a necessary part of hazardous locations design. Our consultants have extensive experience in many such "ordinary location" standards, including how they can affect the hazardous areas safety of your design, including:
