ATEX is an EU classification that states that all Two Way Radios in potentially explosive environments must conform to a higher build quality and standard. Therefore when working in an explosive atmosphere is it paramount to use radios which are certified and ATEX approved. Explosive environments can be caused by flammable gases, mists, vapours or by combustible dusts. Due care and attention must be taken in all explosive atmospheres, if not, this may lead to an explosion or fire. Of course, explosions/fires can result in the loss of life, serious injuries or damage to the workplace therefore it is vital to ensure all equipment is approved.
