Safety company Pyroban is offering users and suppliers of explosion proof forklifts guidance with the introduction of the new ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU which took effect from 20th April 2016.
The Directive, which concerns equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres, replaces the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC as part of a new, consistent Legislative Framework for EU Directives.
“The fundamental basis of the current ATEX Directive is not changed, and while this will minimise impact on manufacturers and suppliers of explosion protection solutions, it may create confusion as to exactly what this means to companies, sales people and end users,” says Steve Noakes, Engineering Manager for Pyroban. “Maintaining safety in potentially explosive atmospheres is so important that it is essential to understand what these changes consist of, both for managers, operators and company legal departments”
