Title Evaluation of the magnitude of explosion hazard by means of a check list
Original title Beurteilung des Umfanges einer Explosionsgefahr mittels Leitschema [in German]
Bibliographic information wissenschaftlich-technische Beilage 4/1974, p.57-60. 10 ref.
Abstract A check list, intended as an aid to the assessment of in-plant explosion hazard, is presented and commented upon. It contains some 50 points concerning production methods used in the plant, characteristics of the combustible substances used, precautions adopted to prevent explosions, and definitive evaluation of explosion hazard in the plant. This check list is effective not only as a precaution for the prevention of explosions but as a useful instrument for maintenance work in plants where there is an explosion hazard.
