The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres
Regulations (DSEAR) require employers to assess all potential risks
to employees and others whose safety may be affected by the use or
presence of a dangerous substance at the workplace.
Two of the key requirements for complying with DSEAR are:
- carrying out a risk assessment that includes identifying
sources of flammable atmospheres and suitable control measures;
- performing Hazardous Area Classification calculations to
identify where flammable atmospheres may be present and where
ignition sources need to be controlled.
