DSC Ltd DSEAR training courses
16 September 2015
There are severe risks associated with the day to day handling of flammable materials. Very few are really aware that even the smallest amounts or slightest inadvertent handling can have devastating consequences. Seemingly harmless substances can create a huge danger potential under the correct unfavourable conditions.
Our DSEAR training course incorporating 18 chemistry experiments is an IOSH-approved and certified DSEAR training course that aims to demonstrate the dangers associated with handling flammable liquids and hazardous substances.
The DSC lecture is informative, lively and thoroughly entertaining. The lecture opens by covering the necessary Legislation, giving examples of current prosecution, but moves quickly into 18 graphic live desktop Chemistry style experiments that clearly demonstrate what goes wrong, when storage is incorrect or handling is not taken seriously.
The goal of the DSEAR experimental lecture is to raise the participants' awareness and perception of Hazardous Materials, in order to detect dangers ahead of a pending accident and avoid undesired reactions by handling hazardous substances properly.
It is designed for all personnel levels, stating the legal consequences to both Directors and Management, whilst physically demonstrating the reality to those most at risk - the operators. Any person responsible for Health and Safety in the work place or protection of our Environment should attend.
The lecture covers :
• Legal foundations
• How sources of danger arise.
• What is the difference between flashpoint and Auto Ignition?
• The fundamentals on the origin of Explosions, Deflagrations and Fires
• Risks resulting from improper storage or handling of these substances
• The meaning of the danger triangle.
