Brochures of the ISSA Section Machine and System Safety

The FSA is involved in the preparation of ISSA Section Machine and System Safety documents. ISSA, the International Social Security Association (www.issa.int), is the world's leading umbrella organization for institutions, government agencies and authorities concerned with social security. The Section Machine and System Safety is one of the 14 international Sections of the ISSA Special Commission on Prevention.
The brochures are available as free download. Further information is available directly on the ISSA Section Machine and System Safety website.

ISSA Section Machine and System Safety
Edition 2006

Practical assistance for the preparation of an explosion protection document

ISBN 92-843-1167-5

This brochure is intended to be a practical aid for preparation of the explosion protection document across different national regulations. National regulations may well set higher requirements.

Edition 2021

Identification and evaluation of hazards, determination of measures

Part 7: Explosion hazards

ISBN 92-843-0156-0

This brochure helps entrepreneurs in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to recognize hazards due to explosions at the workplace. It provides assistance in assessing the associated risks and recommendations for preventive protective measures.

Ausgabe 2021

Digital transformation of technical systems with explosion risk

using the example of storage and processing of bulk materials(e.g. grain) with assessment of the dust explosion risk of complex systems.

ISBN 978-92-843-9131-7

Explosion safety of bulk material plants - Module "raw material reception"

ISBN 92-843-8131-9

A modular structure has been developed for the explosion safety of bulk solids systems, which makes it easier to divide the assessment for a system with regard to the explosion risk into smaller units, so-called "modules". In addition to a clear layout, this enables a targeted and process-oriented approach. In the process step “raw material reception” presented here, flammable, dust-explosive products are accepted as loose bulk material or packed. It is assumed that the bulk material does not contain flammable solvents and that there are no flammable gases and vapours to be considered in this area.

Explosion safety of bulk material plants - Module "Storage"

ISBN 92-843-3131-4

A modular structure has been developed for the explosion safety of bulk solids systems, which makes it easier to divide the assessment for a system with regard to the explosion risk into smaller units, so-called "modules". In addition to a clear layout, this enables a targeted and process-oriented approach. In the process step "storage" presented here, flammable and dust-explosive bulk materials are stored in halls, bunkers and containers. Silos made of metals, concrete, plastics or flexible fabrics are also used.

Edition 2013

Collection of examples "Dust explosion protection for machines and equipment"

Part 1: Mills, crushers, mixers, ash separators, screeners

ISBN 978-92-843-2182-7

This compendium is intended to enable project engineers, plant managers, safety specialists and other parties involved to assess whether explosion risks are present in their own plant or in the construction, equipment and installation of plants without special knowledge in the field of explosion protection.

Edition 2016

Collection of examples "Dust explosion prevention and protection for machines and equipment"

Part 2: Conveyors, transfers and receivers

ISBN 978-92-843-8185-2

This compendium is intended to enable project engineers, plant managers, safety specialists and other parties involved to assess whether explosion risks exist in their own plant or in the construction, equipment and installation of plants without special knowledge in the field of explosion protection.

 

Edition 2022

Safety of liquefied natural gas facilities: Propane and butane

ISBN 92-843-4135-1

This compendium is intended to enable project engineers, plant managers, safety specialists, etc. who have no special knowledge of liquefied gases to assess whether hazards may arise from liquefied gases in their own plant or when constructing, equipping and installing liquefied gas plants. It detects the problems and possible solutions for achieving the protection goals are formulated.

Edition 1998

Determination of combustion and explosion characteristics of dusts

ISBN 92-843-1092-X

The assessment of fire and explosion hazards when handling combustible dusts and the planning and dimensioning of protective measures require knowledge of the combustion and explosion characteristics of dusts. This paper therefore briefly describes the common test equipment and test methods.
