DSEAR - Compliance for Managers and Supervisors

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on DSEAR - Compliance for Managers and Supervisors.

10 October 2018

Other available dates: email us to book
31 January, 6 March 2019

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 regulations place duties on employers and the self-employed to protect employees, contractors and others from the risks from fires and explosions related to dangerous substances stored and used in the workplace.

This course explains the duties that DSEAR places on employers and the actions needed to comply with them. It focuses particularly on the assessment of risks and the application of controls to both minimise and mitigate those risks.

The course will cover

  • The legal duties
  • Assessing the risks from dangerous substances
  • Controlling and mitigating the risks
  • An introduction to hazardous area classification
  • An introduction to equipment for use in explosive atmospheres
  • Primarily this course covers gases, vapours and liquids, with some discussion of dusts.  Those interested solely in dusts hazards should attend the DSEAR - Controlling Dust Explosion Risks course.


Who should attend?

Managers and supervisors of process plant and operations, where dangerous substances are used or stored, who need to understand how to manage the risks from dangerous substances within the framework of the DSEAR duties.


The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester International Airport. This course can be run at your site or local area by arrangement.

Details of hotels in the Buxton area can be found at


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