Static safety on your petrol stations
Are your petrol stations safe and in compliance with their ATEX and DSEAR directives?
They may not be.
Internationally regarded as the best-practice solution to customer protection, static safety and environmental efficiency - GripHero is endorsed by Health, Safety and Sustainability departments around the globe.
It is the world's only ATEX-Certified anti-static hand-protection that can inhibit the build-up of static energy and reduce the potential for static discharge between the individual and petrol station equipment.
Did you know... for petrol stations to comply with their ATEX Directives, 'Group 1' and 'Group 2' equipment (which includes equipment supplied and used within the fuelling zone) must be designed to avoid becoming electrostatically charged and avoid ignition due to electrostatic discharges.
GripHero's highly specialist construction offers two anti-static functions enabling petrol stations to comply with their ATEX Directives over traditional 'gloves' or paper towel:
1) The GripHero protector material can itself avoid the build-up and generation of static energy
2) The GripHero protector material can inhibit the transfer of static energy between the person and petrol station equipment
This makes GripHero the world's only ATEX-Certified hand-protection approved for use in potentially explosive areas (including the fuelling zone within petrol stations).
GripHero can also reduce the need for expensive and unhygienic 'static-discharge pads' on petrol stations.
Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR)
Did you know... All petrol stations are governed by DSEAR.
DSEAR places duties on employers to assess and eliminate risks from dangerous substances where possible.
Are your petrol stations knowingly introducing a static risk into a Zone 1 explosive atmosphere, that can otherwise be mitigated inexpensively?
