If there is a potentially explosive atmosphere or the presence of dangerous substances at your business, then you will need to make sure that your workplace complies with The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR).
What is DSEAR?
DSEAR is the primary legislation pertaining to the control of substances in the workplace which can cause fire and explosions. It helps regulate the risks associated with dangerous substances and work activities that produce explosive atmospheres. Dangerous substances include liquids, gases, vapours and dusts.
Even if you have a current DSEAR assessment in place it is always worthwhile to conduct new assessments regularly to ensure any recent changes are met to the manufacture, storage, process or use of a dangerous substance.
How We Can Help
An initial assessment is the best way to make sure your site is compliant, and make sure that all of the relevant measures are being taken. Our DSEAR assessments are tailored to your business and include:
- Identification of your organisation and whether your workplace contains or has activities that produce explosive or potentially explosive atmospheres.
- Recommendations of any actions given in a report format with prioritised steps.
A DSEAR assessment is essential in making sure your facility has recognised and is reducing the risks associated with dangerous substances. If you feel that your site isn’t currently compliant, or would like an expert’s opinion and advice, talk to our team today to see how we can help.
