ABB launches guide to ATEX compliance

ABB Limited (Group Headquarters) : 14 October, 2004  (Company News)
ABB's campaign to help its customers comply with ATEX 137 continues with the publication of 'ATEX 137 dos and don'ts', a step-by-step guide to the responsibilities of end users operating motors in potentially explosive atmospheres.
ABB's campaign to help its customers comply with ATEX 137 continues with the publication of 'ATEX 137 dos and don'ts', a step-by-step guide to the responsibilities of end users operating motors in potentially explosive atmospheres.

ATEX 137 became law throughout Europe last year and is designed to protect employees, the public and the environment from explosion hazards. But many firms find implementing the Directive daunting, especially since it covers industries such as food, pharmaceuticals and cereals, which may not have had to consider the risk of explosion under previous legislation.

'ATEX 137 do's and don't's provides a concise, step-by-step guide to compliance, from appointing a safety manager and reducing risk to defining hazardous zones and checking the paperwork on new motors. The guide aims to ensure that companies take all the necessary steps to achieve compliance and avoid the pitfalls that could cause problems with regulators, or even put their employees in danger.
