The management of DSEAR

The management of DSEAR

10 November 2023

Hybrid - Online / Crewe

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) apply to all workplaces where dangerous substances are used or produced. This includes many low-risk workplaces, such as those where flammable liquids / explosible dusts are used and stored within the workplace.

DSEAR requires all such workplaces to carry out a risk assessment and ensure suitable control measures are in place. The complexities of DSEAR risk assessments can make them technically challenging and time consuming.

Once a DSEAR Risk Assessment is in place it is vital that the contents are managed effectively and appropriately in order to then protect the workforce and the business. Recovering from a major fire or explosion incident may simply be beyond your business’s resources.

This ½ day course is aimed at those responsible for managing DSEAR and will help you to understand your responsibilities, and how to comply with the law by assessing the risks to people’s safety and ensure the controls you have in the workplace are suitable and sufficient
