What makes a flashlight a "Safety" flashlight?
Courtesy of: Pelican Products, Inc.®

(In any commercial/industrial situation one would be well advised to  use only "hazardous locations" listed flashlights or lanterns)

A certified safety professional should always be consulted in choosing any device where safety is of any concern.

Very briefly, "safety" flashlights have been third party (example: UL® listed; www.ul.com) tested to meet rigid design specifications, which are then approved for use in hazardous locations/areas. There are three classifications of "hazardous locations".

CLASS I
"Where flammable gases and vapors in the air could ignite or explode"
CLASS II
"Where combustible dust is present"
CLASS III
"Where easily ignitable fibers or flyings are present"
Equally important are the sub-divisions of hazardous location classes AND one the additional GROUPS and ZONES (for those and ALL information check at www.ul.com):
CLASS I & II, Division 1
"Where ignitable concentrations (Class I, II elements) can exist ALL of the time or some of the time under normal operating conditions"
CLASS I & II, Division 2
"Where ignitable concentrations of (Class I, II elements) are not likely to exist under normal operating conditions"
