Manufacturing & Extraction Safety

Taking Extra Precautions Towards Extraction

Manufacturing & Extraction Risk Mitigation Measures

The volatile nature of extraction requires extra caution around fire protection.

The number one recommendation for manufacturing operations is to obtain a GMP certification to ensure that your facility is up to snuff with current Good Manufacturing Practices. GMPs help ensure that your facility creates a consistent, quality product based on certain standards and procedures.

By becoming GMP certified, a company signals excellence in their production processes and demonstrates care for the end consumer of their products.

For personnel safety: Restrict access to vault room, volatile extraction rooms, and other sensitive areas of facility.

  • All extraction work carried out in Class 1 D1 Room
  • Explosion proof electrical
  • Automatic exhaust ventilation system
  • Solvents stored in a fire resistant cabinet
  • Automatic gas detection system in place
  • Grounded and bonded equipment in all C1D1/C1D2 environments

Consider an extraction operation inspection to assess the safety of your facility and employees. The information gathered allows you to better understand anticipated losses and offer appropriate risk mitigation recommendations to limit loss potential.
