New DSEAR Code of Practice
Second edition of new DSEAR ACOPS
This new DSEAR Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and guidance provide advice on how to comply with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) which are a statutory requirement in the UK.
These Regulations require the elimination or reduction of risk of fire and explosion from substances connected with work activities. The ACOP is primarily for ‘’an informed and experienced audience’’ such as ExVeritas.
This second edition of new DSEAR Approved Code of Practice (L138) incorporates the four previous DSEAR ACOPs on design, visit web storage, prescription control and safe maintenance. It applies to workplaces that manufacture, store, process or use dangerous substances as defined in this publication.
The consolidated new DSEAR ACOP text and guidance have been simplified, streamlined, and restructured to help the reader. No significant new duties are placed on businesses that are in compliance with the replaced ACOPs, although the content has been updated in light of changes to European and domestic legislation, such as substance classification and labelling and general fire safety.
We offer a full range if services covering every aspect of DSEAR and are specialists in zone and risk reduction to save clients time and cost whilst actually making the plant safer! We also offer a DSEAR Gap Analysis which is a very cost effective review and audit program to ensure you are legally compliant with the new DSEAR ACOPS
