Dangerous Substance Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (DSEAR)
20 April 2021
The workshop provides a basic insight into aspects of DSEAR including:
♦ Legislative requirements
♦ Dangerous Substances
♦ Hazard and Risk
♦ Hazardous Area Classification
♦ Basis of Safety
♦ Equipment selection and inspection requirements
♦ Safety Management System
The above topics will be covered in a manner which is tailored towards the specific needs of the CBA member organisations.
The application of the ATEX directive and its UK implementation through DSEAR by companies has been shown to be of variable quality. DSEAR sets minimum requirements for the protection of workers from risks related to dangerous substances.
Dangerous substances are substances used or present at work that could, if not properly controlled, cause harm to people as a result of a fire or explosion. They can be found in nearly all workplaces and include such things as solvents, paints, varnishes, flammable gas, combustible dusts, foodstuffs and pressurised (non-flammable) gases.
This awareness session will cover underpinning knowledge, practical examples and case studies and discuss the implications for your own organisation.
Who should attend?
This course has been specifically designed for personal working within management and those involved in the implementation of the measures necessary for compliance with DSEAR, in a manufacturing, distribution or storage business.
