  • Never again - Hazardous Area Equipment Can Help Stop Major Incidents

    The ongoing major incident at a wood mill in Bosley, Cheshire, is a stark reminder of the importance of hazardous area equipment in order to ensure such a disaster is never allowed to happen again. In the UK, the stringent rules regarding workplace health and safety, and ever-evolving research into risks and their management, all help to reduce the likelihood of a serious incident. However, workplace injuries and fatalities sadly do still occur, with falls from height and exposure to asbestos among the common everyday threats. As the Bosley incident shows though, a single major incident can have far-reaching repercussions; the final fatality count is likely to be four, and 35 people in total were directly affected by the explosion. This is, of course, not the first major explosion, coming less than a decade after the Buncefield oil depot ignited in a fuel-air explosion that resulted in the UK's biggest-ever peacetime blaze. It is also just a year since the 40th anniversary of the Flixborough disaster, an explosion at a nylon plant that killed 28 and injured 36 people. Hazardous area equipment may not prevent gas and chemical leaks, but what it can do is to remove the source of ignition by cutting electricity supplies, adding surge protection to circuitry, or safely sealing away any lighting elements that might be hot. Incidents will always occur in some form; but by safeguarding against explosions in the presence of substantial quantities of fuel, we can work to ensure this kind of major incident is unable to occur.

  • Bosley explosion triggers power cut in surrounding hazardous area

    A major explosion at a wood flour processing plant in Bosley, East Cheshire, led to a deliberate power cut in the surrounding hazardous area - a region including some 165 homes. The incident occurred just after 9am on July 17th, following a report to the fire service of an explosion at the plant, which produces wood flour, a finely ground ingredient used in the manufacture of some composites. Multiple explosions were reported, with 15 fire crews attending the scene, where a four-storey building had collapsed. With four people unaccounted for, fire crews decided to send in search and rescue teams - but to make the area safe and prevent further explosions, Electricity Northwest were asked to cut the mains supply, affecting 165 nearby homes. Nearby residents had already been told to stay indoors with their doors and windows closed, in light of the potentially hazardous smoke emanating from the site. The cause of the incident was not immediately reported, although finely ground substances are a common explosive risk. But it highlights how hazardous areas can quickly spread - whether due to smoke, the risk of subsequent explosions, or by falling within the catchment area of mains utilities - such that members of the public in their own homes can be adversely affected by such incidents.
