ATEX is the abbreviation for the French words ATmosphères EXplosibles. ATEX are European directives for explosive environments and situations where there is a risk of gas and dust explosion. The purpose of the ATEX directives is to ensure the safety and health of the workforce in areas with explosion hazards. This involves the control of conditions in an explosive atmosphere, in situations where it is not possible to eliminate the explosion hazard by substitution of substances. Strict requirements are therefore imposed on the workplace, on work equipment and on installation material.
