The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) requires employers to keep workers safe from the risks of fire, explosions and substances corrosive to metals.
Safety First offers DSEAR risk assessments and fire risk assessments, that will highlight any risks to ensure your business is compliant with regulations.
The importance of DSEAR risk assessments
Fires and explosions create harmful physical effects, such as thermal radiation, oxygen depletion and overpressure effects. Substances corrosive to metal may cause damage to structures containing metal, which could cause reduced structural integrity.
Complying with DSEAR requires assessing the risks that may be caused by dangerous substances. Employers must identify and examine: dangerous substances in the workplace, work activities involving those substances, and the ways in which both substances and activities can harm workers, as well as members of the public.
