HSE Training runs three different courses to help employers comply with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR).  These are:

It is intended that delegates select which course is the most relevant to them rather than attending more than one.


The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations  2002 (DSEAR) regulate the presence and use of flammable substances in the workplace. The list of potential dangerous substances includes gases, liquids and flammable solids in the form of a finely divided dust which, if dispersed in the air, could lead to a serious fire or an explosion.

However, flammable dusts pose their own unique risks that differ from those posed by flammable gases and liquids. This course provides advice on how to understand the hazards from flammable dusts and how the risks from storing and using the dusts can be managed so as to comply with DSEAR.

The course will coverCPD Certified

  • A brief overview of the Regulations
  • Identifying and understanding the hazards
  • Assessing the risks
  • Controlling the risks
  • Hazardous area classification
  • An introduction to equipment for use in explosive atmospheres

Who should attend?

Managers, Health and Safety Specialists and other supervisory staff responsible for ensuring compliance with the DSEAR Regulations.


The cost of this course is £625 per person (includes course notes, certificate of attendance and lunch/refreshments).
