A comprehensive approach
The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) is a law in place to reduce the risk of harm from an explosion in the workplace.
A DSEAR assessment helps you to:
Identify what dangerous substances you have and how they may be able to form an explosive atmosphere based on the processes that you undertake.
Put control measures in place to reduce the risk of an explosion.
Put controls in place to mitigate the effects of any incidents.
Identify areas that are hazardous and classify them in to zones.
Identify ATEX categories of electrical equipment that may need to be used in a classified zone, where installed.
