Intrinsically Safe (or Atex) means that the radio is safe to use in hazardous environments, where the presence of a spark, flame or heat from any electrical component could create a fire or explosive risk. In the case of two way radios, this is especially important since they are mobile and can be carried into any such area unknowingly.

Environments where Atex radios should be used include oil rigs, refineries, gas staions, coal mines and chemical plants.
