Annual Safety Audits
The Pyroban Annual Safety Audit is a thorough inspection of all safety critical components and systems. An Ex-ASA is a solution which provides a means of compliance to the ATEX Directives if carried out annually. An Ex-ASA can also prove beneficial when purchasing a used piece of equipment or following refurbishment or modification.
The Pyroban EX-Annual Safety Audit is a thorough inspection of the safety critical components in our explosion protection conversions. The EX-ASA ensures that the integrity and safety of your material handling equipment is not compromised during its working lifetime. When you are dealing with potentially hazardous materials, the smallest spark or increase in temperature could become an ignition source, and it is imperative that all Pyroban equipment is maintained to the highest order.
The inspection can be carried out at any location across the world by one of our CompEx accredited engineers. All safety critical components of Pyroban’s explosion protection system are inspected and recorded, including Exd enclosures, cables and glands, shutdown devices, conductivity and fork cladding.
Prior to our engineer’s visit please follow this checklist and complete the Declaration of Decontamination present with the truck.
Why do I need an EX-ASA?
ATEX 1999/92/EC requires the end user to “demonstrate that work equipment is designed and maintained with due regard for safety.” All equipment is maintained in accordance with EN60079-17 which states that an inspection routine should be introduced to ensure the continued safe operation of equipment.
If no irregularities have been found, the truck will be declared safe for use and a certificate will be issued to support your Explosion Protection Document (EPD). Irregularities need to be repaired immediately by either the Pyroban service engineer or a Pyroban trained engineer from your service provider. Once correctly repaired a truck can be re-inspected and a certificate issued.
We recommend that an EX-ASA is carried out yearly to ensure your equipment is fully protected and working correctly.
