DSEAR or (Dangerous Substance Explosive Atmosphere Regulation 2002)
This unique course has been specifically developed to help those associated with and responsible for, Health and Safety in the workplace.
SHE representatives, Shop floor managers and Directors alike should all fully understand the implications of what can go so seriously wrong, when using, storing or transporting flammable and hazardous chemicals.
Are You Compliant ?
In addition to the basics, such as the Fire Danger triangle, use of Flammables in the work place, methods of correct storage and legal penalties for non-compliance with DSEAR , the course also covers many aspects associated with the regulation that most would never consider when doing their Risk Assessment, simply because they may not have the depth of experience to recognise the severity of the pending danger.
The implications of production processes, Explosive Atmosphere’s generated by substances not classified as flammable, the associations of Flash Point, Auto Ignition, Vapour Pressure, Vapour Density, Limits of Flammability, Boiling Point and much more.
Also still available from DSC-Ltd is our standard 2 hour DSEAR Awareness Lecture, aimed at all employees and trainees working in industry, where handling Flammable and Hazardous materials is part of their daily routine.
DSEAR is not just about how to store Dangerous Chemicals, It clearly states requirements for all of the following:
*Regulation 5 requires employers to assess risks to employees and others whose safety may be affected by the use or presence of dangerous substances at work.
*Regulation 6 sets out how the risk to safety from dangerous substances should be eliminated or reduced.
