LG welcomes FETA updates on flammables

LG Electronics has welcomed news from the Federation of Environmental Trade Associations (FETA) relating to guidance on compliance with dangerous substance regulations to ensure worker safety when handling a growing number of flammable refrigerant products being used in the sector.

The aspiration to cut carbon emissions from cooling technologies has seen a marked shift towards refrigerants with a level of flammability, and LG is among companies to have released products designed for R32-based refrigerant, which is classified as an A2L refrigerant with a low GWP.

Shaun Yeats from LG said: “We believe it’s key that FETA has recognised the importance of the need for this new advice and guidance. Happily, these recommendations and guidelines match LG’s installation recommendations and technical data.”

LG distributor Space Air’s managing director, Neil Afram, added: “I look forward to seeing the new guidance document and the more detailed advice that will have specific application-based risk assessments, later in the year.

“We understand that the latest flammables guidance will focus on assessing risk in the workplace to ensure compliance with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations to include all RACHP installations. These guidance documents are expected to be applied by all industry sectors from specification and installation stage to final commissioning and maintenance.”
