What is the significance of DSEAR and ATEX legislation?
DSEAR and ATEX are a set of regulations and directives designed to protect people from fires, explosive atmospheres and similar situations arising from the use of dangerous substances in the workplace. Employers have a legal responsibility to provide their workers with protection in line with the requirements set out by the DSEAR and ATEX regulations.
Who does DSEAR / ATEX legislation effect?
The DSEAR / ATEX regulations apply to all employers and the self employed.
DSEAR / ATEX applies to many industries that include the handling, manufacture and storage of bulk powders, petrol, or flammable liquids, and other dangerous substances, as well as mining, chemical manufacture and processing, and the petrochemical industry (both offshore and onshore). Industries with high risk rates in relation to dangers from fire, explosive atmospheres and exothermic reactions etc must comply with these regulations.
