Can we use GoPro Action Camera in the oil and gas industry?

I am working in an oil and gas industry and we usually used expensive explosion proof equipment including cameras.  Often times we buy mobile phones and tablets with explosion proof casings.

 

I find GoPro action camera durable enough compared to most of the products we are using.  However, these products are certified as explosion proof.  If it is not much, it is good to have your action cameras explosion proof certified.  If this wll be realized, a lot of industrial corporations will benefit.

 

Thanks and regards.

You can offer that feedback to the link provided  Here  https://gopro.com/feedback

 

  Wecan all talk about it, that is as far as it will go on the post if asked.   I see getting a waterproof case be the best bet  and see if that  is  strong enohg but who knows My cam went flying at 70 plus mph  and survived.
