Classification of a hazardous area on your site should be conducted by a H Class Inspector or certified Hazardous Locations Assessor. Once the area has been classified we can assist with the types of lightning protection equipment, services, maintenance and solutions that are appropriate for that hazardous area, subject to meeting Australian & New Zealand standards and State and Territory legislation.


If you are unsure that you have a hazardous area on your site or require assistance in the classification of a hazardous area , then we recommend that you talk to an expert.
