On-demand Webinar: DSEAR Legislation – 10 Common Questions

DSEAR is an acronym for the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations (2002). This UK based legislation provides protection against risk from fire, explosion and similar events that may arise from the handling, use of and storage of dangerous substances in the workplace. 

Significant factors when undertaking a DSEAR are the materials and their potentially explosive properties and the atmospheres that they may be used in. 

As a specialist subject, a DSEAR should be completed by a competent persons. This will ensure that only accurate guidance is given.  

No matter how long you’ve been in the industry or how hard you try to absorb DSEAR information, knowledge gaps can always appear. During this webinar we will answer the most common questions we are asked regarding DSEAR legislation.

What you’ll learn:

  • Why as organisations and as individuals we need to create a culture of working in ‘continuous improvement’ mode
  • Why you should always focus on process inputs 
  • Why you should never blanket zone and what the regulators really think about it

  • Process Safety Managers
  • Health and Safety Managers
