Explosion Proof Inspection Lights.

Conducting regular inspections is an important aspect of any work area to ensure the safety and security of manpower as well as equipment. Inspection takes the centre stage in a hazardous work environment where the risk of fire and explosion is always present. 

Inspections help in identifying existing and potential hazards, determining the cause of a hazard and taking corrective actions. Moreover, they are a regulatory requirement and hence have to be conducted at regular intervals. Regular inspections help in preventing accidents and injuries. They are an integral part of the overall occupational health and safety program.

Special attention must be paid to areas which are likely to develop unsafe or unhealthy conditions because of impact, vibration, wear and tear, corrosion, chemical reaction, misuse, heat and other factors that might arise during day-to-day operations. However, areas which are not included in regular operations such as storage areas, emergency equipment, and rest areas also need regular inspection. 

Inspection in hazardous areas can be done in many ways. From inspecting the equipment to electrical installations – every aspect of a hazardous area needs to be monitored from time to time. Usually, inspection is done in three ways:

  1. Visual inspection: As the name suggests, this is an overall inspection to find issues apparent to the eye. This can include missing bolts, defects or issues with the tools. Visual inspection can be done from a distance, with or without physically accessing equipment or area. 
  2. Close inspection: This encompasses a more detailed inspection of the hazardous area. This kind of inspection requires accessing equipment or area physically with the help of access equipment such as steps or tools and inspection lighting. However, a close inspection may not involve opening an enclosure or de-energizing equipment. 
  3. Details inspection: This kind of inspection is done to pinpoint a problem area and take corrective measures. Detailed inspection requires the opening of enclosures, de-energizing equipment, and dismantling cables wherever applicable. Inspection tools and lighting play a crucial role in this kind of inspection. 

All these inspections can help in the identification of various kinds of hazards such as:

  • Safety hazards, like those caused by technical errors in machines.
  • Physical hazards, that can result from noise, vibration, weather, cold, heat, radiation, pressure, odour, etc.
  • Chemical hazards that can be caused by solids, liquids, gases, vapours, dust, fumes or mist.
  • Biological hazards, caused by fungi, parasites, bacteria, viruses, insects etc. Hazardous work environments such as food processing industries, and pharmaceutical industries are susceptible to these kinds of hazards. 
  • Ergonomic hazards from improper work methods such as incorrect handling of machines, materials, etc.
