What you need to know about DSEAR risk assessments

DSEAR risk assessments are often complex and require specialist knowledge to carry them out. The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere regulations 2002 (DSEAR) regulations purpose is to set the minimum requirements for the protection of workers from fire and explosion risks related to dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres – whether that be from liquids, gases or dusts. 

In this webinar, Fire Protection Association DSEAR assessment specialists, Howard Passey and Marcus Rees will detail exactly what a DSEAR risk assessment is, when you need one, what steps you can take to reduce the risk from hazardous substances and potentially explosive atmospheres, plus what to expect from an assessment. The regulations apply to a range of industries and this type of assessment often comes as a result of a completed fire risk assessment. Unsure if your business needs one? This is the webinar you need to register for.
