Explosion hazard

An explosion hazard is a hazard that can occur when an explosive mixture is present at the same time as an ignition source. The explosive mixture may be formed from flammable gases, vapours, mists or dusts.

In Germany, ATEX 137 is embodied in the country's Occupational Safety and Health Act
