Potential objects of crashes related to the explosion are usually storage of explosive and flammable materials, semi-finished products and chemical plants, gasoline vapors, and other components in refineries during transportation of explosives, gas pipeline etc. In accidents involving explosively there are large casualties and destruction, which are the result of blasting action of explosion products and air blast. Reduce the risk to people is possible by improving the reliability of the process equipment and reduce the chances of thermal ignition source. To apply this circuit protection system is used. The next stage of the protection of persons against thermal radiation is the correct approach to the selection of quality workwear.
