Abstract: As vehicle technology has advanced over the years, so have the fuel sources and materials used to make the vehicles. While performing repairs to vehicles, these fuel sources or materials may present a hazard with arcing or sparking components. These hazardous locations rely on special design accommodations to reduce the amount of energy supplied to negate the risk of a hazard. What are these hazardous materials? Are there different types of hazardous locations or regulations for different materials? How can we design to minimize risk in hazardous locations?
