  • Stay safe and seen with exd lighting

    As the nights continue to draw in - with the shortest day this year almost coinciding with Christmas - exd lighting will play an important role in improving visibility in hazardous areas. Exd lighting has year-round applications on any premises that operate overnight, or in locations where a certain brightness level is needed regardless of the weather conditions. But in winter, when the sun rises after the working day has already begun, and sets again before the shift is even over, hazardous area lighting becomes especially important. There are of course many reasons why good illumination levels are important, making it easier to see personnel moving around the area, or to safely handle goods passing through it. Good visibility is essential during maintenance work too, although hazardous area lighting itself is typically designed to require a bare minimum of human access and maintenance, for use in areas that are difficult to reach. And there is no better time to invest in such precautions than on the cusp of a new calendar year - not only as part of a commitment to safeguarding employees, but also in order to improve your safety record on paper as a new 12-month period begins.

  • How hazardous area heaters can help

    Mid-November saw Cardiff rocked by tragedy as an explosion at the city's Celsa steelworks claimed two lives and left several others injured. Each time an industrial incident of this kind occurs, it raises questions about ongoing safety precautions on active sites, especially those such as steelworks where there may be high temperatures and flammable materials in everyday usage. At the time of writing, the cause of the Celsa blast has not yet been formally announced, but reports claim that it may have been triggered in an oil accumulator in the facility's bar and rod mill. With autumn rapidly becoming winter, many industrial facilities are likely to be switching on their heaters to keep staff comfortable when working in draughty locations - raising the risk of sparking a fire or explosion in the presence of combustible fluids. Hazardous area heaters help to reduce this risk, by delivering the warmth that is needed, without representing a risk of igniting any fumes in the atmosphere. Luis Sanz, managing director of Celsa Steel UK, said on November 19th: "In memory of our colleagues, we will strive tirelessly to avoid another day like yesterday. Safety is always our absolute priority." With hazardous area heaters and other specially designed hazardous area equipment, active sites in all industries can do their bit to ensure no such explosions claim any human lives in the years to come.
