Report on Comments – June 2011
non-sparking tools include OSHA inspection# 309178523, 17857228, 122021017, 313996118, 302920400, and 309178523.
We respectfully request the Committee to reconsider and implement a safer practice to control ignition sources with spark resistant tools. Without this specification, ferrous tools are likely to be used which can be an ignition source. However, if upon further consideration, the Committee still does not see the need for restricting ferrous tools in flammable atmospheres, we ask the Committee to at least include the proposed text in Annex text to raise the awareness of ignition hazard associated with ferrous tools in direct contact with flammable materials.
