Dsear Dsear

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002(DSEAR) are supported by Approved Code of Practice and guidance (ACOP) documents listed to the right. 

The Regulations apply to the majority of work activities, including those carried out in moveable structures i.e. gantries or work at height platforms, outdoor areas and domestic premises.

These include work being carried out by an employer (or self-employed person), where a dangerous substance is present (or is liable to be present or generated) at the workplace,  where a potentially explosive atmosphere may occur, or the dangerous substance and/or potentially explosive atmosphere could be a risk to the safety of people as a result of fires, explosions or similar energetic events.

COSHH COSHH

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH) requires employers to control exposure to hazardous substances to prevent ill health. To comply with the regulations the employer must assess the risks to health arising from hazardous substances created by the work activity, and decide what precautions are needed to prevent or adequately control exposure.

CIRIA CIRIA

CIRIA is the Construction Industry Research and Information Association.  As a neutral, independent and not-for-profit body, they link organisations with common interests and facilitate a range of collaborative activities that help improve the industry.

The guidance in document C736 has been developed to assist owners and operators of industrial and commercial facilities storing substances (inventories) that may be hazardous to the environment. It provides guidance on identifying the hazards, assessing the risks and mitigating the potential consequences of a failure of the primary storage facility and/or the combustion of its contents. A three-tier risk assessment methodology is introduced with recommendations for different ‘classes’ of construction for each.

HSG HSG

As a regulator, the Health & Safety Executive aims to prevent workplace death, injury or ill health.

They achieve this using a variety of methods to influence change and help people manage risks at work. They include providing advice, information and guidance, raising awareness in workplaces by influencing and engaging, operating permissioning and licensing activities in major hazard industries, carrying out targeted inspections and investigations and taking enforcement action to prevent harm and hold those who break the law to account.

HSG71 is for anyone with responsibility for storing dangerous substances, regardless of facility size. The document includes control measures aimed at elimination or reduction of risks due to storage of packaged dangerous goods.

HSG140 is for those responsible for the safe use and handling of flammable liquids in all general work activities, small-scale chemical processing and spraying processes. It explains the fire and explosion hazards associated with flammable liquids and will help you determine how to control the risks in your workplace.

HSG51 is for those responsible for the safe storage of flammable liquids in containers at the workplace. It applies to storage of flammable liquids in containers up to 1000 litres capacity.

It explains the fire and explosion hazards associated with flammable liquids and will help you determine how to control the risks in your workplace.
