What is the basis of hazardous area classification?

An industrial area is considered a hazardous area when it contains three fundamental components: a flammable substance which could be liquid, solid or gas; an oxidizer and a source of ignition. These flammable substances can be liquids and gases such as kerosene, gasoline or hydrogen or the solid particles like small fibers and dust. Any oxidizer is the oxygen in the air and the source of ignition could be an open flame or spark or even anything like excessive heat that can ignite a flame.
