- The fuel concentration is never allowed to be within its flammable range, or
- The atmosphere is depleted of oxidant by at least 2.0 volume percent below the LOC, such that it cannot support combustion (inerting);
- All the ignition sources capable of igniting the flammable mixture are removed; or
- People, equipment, and facilities are protected against the consequences of an explosion by “protection measures” such as spacing, barricading, explosion containment, explosion venting, or explosion suppression.
