DANGEROUS SUBSTANCES EXPLOSIVE ATMOSPHERES (DSEAR) – The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) require employers to control the risks to safety from fire, explosions and substances corrosive to metals.
Dangerous substances can put peoples’ safety at risk from fire, explosion and corrosion of metal. DSEAR puts duties on employers and the self-employed to protect people from these risks to their safety in the workplace, and to members of the public who may be put at risk by work activity.
Dangerous substances are any substances present at work that could if not adequately controlled, cause harm to people. This may be as result of a fire, explosion or corrosion of metal. These substances can be found in nearly all workplaces and include things such as solvents, paints, varnishes, pressurised gases and flammable gases – such as liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Dusts of any kind from sanding, milling or foodstuff that when spread in air to form a cloud which could explode.
