HSL – DSEAR – Controlling Dust Explosion Risks – Buxton, 22 February 2017

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on DSEAR – Controlling Dust Explosion Risks.

22 February 2017

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres
Regulations  2002 (DSEAR) regulate the presence and use of
flammable substances in the workplace. The list of potential
dangerous substances includes gases, liquids and flammable solids
in the form of a finely divided dust which, if dispersed in the
air, could lead to a serious fire or an explosion.

However, flammable dusts pose their own unique risks that differ
from those posed by flammable gases and liquids. This course
provides advice on how to understand the hazards from flammable
dusts and how the risks from storing and using the dusts can be
managed so as to comply with DSEAR.

  • A brief overview of the Regulations
  • Identifying and understanding the hazards
  • Assessing the risks
  • Controlling the risks
  • Hazardous area classification
  • Equipment for use in classified areas

Managers, Health and Safety Specialists and other supervisory
staff responsible for ensuring compliance with the DSEAR

The cost of this course is £495 per person (includes course
notes, certificate of attendance and lunch/refreshments).
