Hazardous Locations

Experienced Service for Hazardous Locations

Commercial Contractor in Los Angeles

If your electrical project involves hazardous locations, you need a contractor who can quickly and safely produce the results you need. According to the National Electrical Code, a hazardous location is an area "where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings."


Hazardous locations include, but are not limited to:

  • Utility gas plants
  • Petroleum refineries
  • Gasoline storage and dispensing areas
  • Spray finishing areas
  • Operations involving the storage and handling of liquefied petroleum gas or natural gas

It is imperative that factories and facilities that work with flammable substances ensure that their electricity is installed correctly. At Southwest Industrial Electric, we are prepared to handle virtually any complex electrical project, including those in hazardous locations.

What are the 3 criteria which must be present for a location to be considered hazardous?

Safety is integral for any workplace. That’s why when an area deals with flammable or explosive materials, it must be classified as a hazardous location. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides three criteria for a place to be deemed hazardous.

These hazard classifications must be present:

  • Class 1: Flammable gases or vapors may be present
  • Class 2: Combustible dust may be present
  • Class 3: Easily ignitable fibers or flyings may be present
