The Hazardous Materials Response Technology Assessment by the US Fire Administration/ Federal Emergency Management Agency (USFA/FEMA) states, Ordinary hand tools are usually made of steel, which can cause sparks if struck, scraped, or dropped which can be disastrous in an explosive atmosphere. Tools used in a hazardous materials incident MUST be constructed of non-sparking, non-ferrous, non-magnetic, corrosion-resistant metals. AMPCO Non-Sparking, Non-Magnetic and Corrosion-Resistant Hand Tools conform to Federal, GSA, Military, as well as other international standards.

In general, Non-Sparking Tools should be used in any environment where ignition sources are a concern. Applications include, but not limited to:
