Explosive Atmospheres

Several conditions must be met simultaneously for a fire or explosion to occur. Fuel (i.e., combustible gas) and oxygen (i.e., air) must exist in certain concentrations near an ignition source (i.e., spark or flame). The dangerous ratio of fuel and oxygen is different for each combustible gas or vapor, and explosions can occur at any time and have disastrous consequences. It’s critical for employers and employees understand these hazards and implement ways to control them.
