About DSEAR Awareness Training

Accidental fires and explosions can be devastating. The potential for loss of life, serious injury, property damage or forced downtime is more severe than almost any other type of workplace accident. This risk is even greater when flammable liquids, dust, gasses or solids are present in your workplace.

Our online DSEAR training course gives you an essential understanding of this key legislation and what it means for your organisation. It helps ensure you are in full compliance with the law when working with dangerous substances or explosive atmospheres and supports safer working.

Why is this DSEAR Training Course Important?

A clear understanding of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations is essential for any organisation where these hazards are present.

Ensuring necessary training is provided helps to:

  • Support compliance: Training helps ensure staff understand what they must do to adhere to the law
  • Increase safety awareness: Knowledge of the law helps employees understand how to handle dangerous substances on site and the risks they pose
  • Risk mitigation: Having a clear understanding of DSEAR requirements enhances employee appreciation of the risk assessment and control process
  • Protection of employees and assets: Employees that are aware of DSEAR will be better equipped to minimise the risk to themselves and your operations
  • Demonstration of compliance: You will have evidence staff have been given the necessary information and instruction in regards to this key law

What are your Responsibilities for DSEAR Compliance?

If your operations involve dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres or situations that generate them, you must adhere to DSEAR regulations. This includes sectors such as manufacturing, chemical processing, warehousing and even office environments where the use of flammable substances is common.

Employers have the following duties under this legislation:

  • Risk Assessment: Conduct thorough workplace risk assessments to identify and assess potential risks posed by dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres
  • Hazardous Area Classification: Classify, designate and manage hazardous areas accordingly
  • Control Measures: Put effective control measures in place to mitigate DSEAR risks, including engineering and administrative controls
  • Ignition source control: Identify and control potential ignition sources
  • Emergency Procedures: Establish emergency procedures
  • Employee Training: Provide adequate, appropriate and accessible training
  • Maintenance and inspection: Set up and follow inspection and maintenance systems
  • Information and consultation: Provide employees with relevant information and consult them on DSEAR issues
  • Record-keeping: Maintain appropriate records
