The biggest changes are for equipment that work in Zone 2:
- Tyres and polymer wheels must be antistatic when and where the travel speed is greater than 6 Km/H. It is required not only for trucks working in zone 1 area but also in zone 2,21,22 areas.
- All tyres and others….. must be conductivity to the earth (using conductive tyres)
- Roll up cabin sides and other externally made in non-metalic parts must be antistatic.
- Seats and back rests must be antistatic and attached to the vehicles chassis. This because now the movement of the worker is considered a potential ignition risk
