Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations
- DSEAR: Gases and Liquids
- DSEAR: Hazardous Area Classification for
Gases and Liquids

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.
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
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.
Delegates will be provided with information that will help them
- Know their legal duties under DSEAR
- Be able to act as an intelligent customer when commissioning
- Be able to understand the key concepts related to hazardous
area classification and common approaches
- Be able to identify potential ignition sources and select
appropriate ATEX rated equipment
What the course will cover
The course will help delegates understand their legal duties
under DSEAR, as well as the moral and financial reasons why they
should comply with the regulations. Delegates will be shown how to
assess, control and mitigate the risk from dangerous substances and
will be introduced to the equipment for use in explosive
atmospheres. Delegates will be introduced to the key definitions
and concept areas of hazardous area classification and the
standards that apply. The course also looks at hazardous area
classification for laboratories and small-scale operations, as well
as covering mists and the control of ignition sources.

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
