Identifying Appropriate Fire and Explosion Hazard Data for your Unit Operations

Manufacturers need to understand if their materials are flammable, and what risks are inherent in the material being handled. The storage, processing, handling, and packaging of materials create potentially hazardous conditions in the workplace with a risk of fire and explosion.

To mitigate the risk of fire and explosion, industry is required under different Health & Safety legislation, for example, DSEAR/ATEX/NFPA in the UK/EU/USA and in some cases with the added compliance requirement of COMAH/Seveso to undertake adequate risk assessment and identify hazardous areas.

To perform risk assessments a Materials Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) is used to understand the physical properties of the material being processed. Although, MSDS data provided can help, it is not always comprehensive enough for the specificities of your process conditions/unit operations and may result in expensive over-engineering.
