DSEAR – Gases and Liquids

01 February 2023

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 one or more courses depending on which area of DSEAR they are interested in.

Introduction

DSEAR places 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
  • Area classification of laboratories
  • An introduction to equipment for use in explosive atmospheres

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at managers and supervisors of process plant and operations, where dangerous substances are used or stored, or safety specialists who need to understand how to manage the risks from dangerous substances within the framework of the DSEAR duties.  This course is intended to allow them to act as an intelligent customer when commissioning work related to DSEAR.

Venue

The course will be run at the HSE Science and Research Centre 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.
