HSL is to run a 1 day course on DSEAR – Controlling Dust Explosion Risks.
Date: 25 April 2019
HSE runs three courses to help employers comply with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR). These have been revised and updated for 2019:
- DSEAR – Gases and Liquids
- Hazardous Area Classification for Gases and Liquids
- DSEAR – Controlling Dust Explosion Risks
While there is some overlap between the courses delegates can attend or more courses depending on which area of DSEAR they are interested in.
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.
The course will cover
- A brief overview of the Regulations
- Identifying and understanding the hazards
- Assessing the risks
- Controlling the risks
- Hazardous area classification
- 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.
The cost of this course is £650 per person (includes course notes, certificate of attendance and lunch/refreshments).
