In electrical and safety engineering, hazardous locations are places were fire or explosion hazards may exist.  Sources of such hazards include gasesvapoursdust, fibres, and flyings, which are combustible or flammableElectrical equipment installed in such locations could provide an ignition source, due to electrical arcing, or high temperature.  SANS Standards and  Statutory Requirement exist to identify such locations, classify the hazards, and design equipment for safe use in such locations.

In an industrial plant, such as a refinery or chemical plant, handling of large quantities of flammable liquids and gases, creates an explosion risk. Coal mines, grain millselevators, and similar facilities likewise creates a Dust Cloud explosion risk. 

The process of determining the type and size of hazardous locations is called classification.  This process is normally known as Area Classification.
