DSEAR Assessments at Work

Here at WG Safety, we help construction teams and industrial companies meet with the standards needed for DSEAR compliance through DSEAR assessments at work. To do this effectively, you need the expertise of our trained DSEAR consultants to help you understand and implement the regulations and control measures needed to meet with legislation.

DSEAR requires the assessment of potentially explosive atmospheres and risk of physical harm from hazardous events, in order to protect workers and others at risk.

Our DSEAR compliance services cover the risks of explosions, hazardous events and substances covered by the EU CLP Regulation. We also include hazardous area classification drawings in all our assessments. 

Workplace DSEAR assessments, Midland’s industries must have implemented, helps to clearly see the many risks posed and the measures you can put in place to either reduce or eliminate the risks.  For example, can another material be used for the job at hand, or can you make schedule jobs so that two substances do not come into close contact?  All our DSEAR Consultants have been trained by HSE’s Health and Safety Laboratories (HSL) and have over 20 years’ experience in delivering DSEAR assessments to meet HSE’s standards.

Our team also have over 16 years’ experience in completing workplace DSEAR assessments for all kinds of industries and various businesses that have needed to meet with standards for DSEAR compliance.  
Although DSEAR is also a dangerous substance assessment, it expands upon the COSHH regulations as it is concerned with the physical risks involved in terms of explosions and a breakout of fires due to the substances used in the workplace setting.  It complements the COSHH 2002 guidelines and is therefore a vital part of the overall Health and Safety measures and legislation that must be met with.

Workplace DSEAR Assessments

Our consultants can help to identify hazardous areas, Wolverhampton Industrial businesses may have, to ensure that anyone who enters knows the risks, and the need to meet with the assessments.  For example, you may have a zone that forbids the use of electrical equipment, a zone with controls that monitors the temperature, or that implements other precautions to prevent risk.

Each of our team members knows how to identify and recognise substances in your working environment that are hazardous, and then how to scrutinise the chemical properties that may cause an explosive reaction, in order to apply the protection and measures needed.  Awareness is a huge part of safety, and our workplace DSEAR assessments Wolverhampton team can help to provide the knowledge needed before entering and working in any of these hazardous areas.
