DSEAR – Controlling Dust Explosion Risks

Live Online

03 June 2021 - 04 June 2021

Other available dates: email us to book

HSE runs three courses to help employers comply with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR).

While there is some overlap between the courses delegates can attend or more courses depending on which area of DSEAR they are interested in.

Introduction

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 cover
