The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulation is a law put in place to protect people from potential risk of fires and explosions that can be caused by any dangerous substances within the workplace.
Here at RSM, we can provide you with a DSEAR Site inspection where you will be provided with a detailed report highlighting any potential risks and hazards that need to be addressed immediately, along with any suggested improvements that may need to be made. If you store fuel onsite, it is recommended that you have a certified technician carry out regular checks. By doing this it can ensure that any issues are identified early and addressed to ensure that you are in accordance with the guidance.
To ensure compliance with the DSEAR regulations, employers must:
- Provide information regarding DSEAR, including training to all employees
- Take actions to reduce the risks presented by dangerous substances
- Undertale a DSEAR risk assessment of all operations that involve dangerous substances
- Ensure that correctly rated mechanical and electrical equipment is used within the hazardous areas/zones
