DSEAR and ATEX153 Implementation
Accredited implementation and consultancy
DSEAR is a UK statutory instrument; companies are legally required to comply so a correct DSEAR implementation is absolutely necessary. DSEAR covers ‘Flammable Materials and Explosive Atmospheres’ such as flammable solvents, gases, fuel and most dusts. If you are a new site, or a site that has not implemented DSEAR, then we can take care of all of the work in a turnkey delivery project for a firm cost. Having experts conduct this work can often save a company a considerable amount of unnecessary expenditure (for example, on ATEX equipment that may not have been necessary as the areas need not have been classified). If you are unsure if you have implemented and maintained DSEAR correctly, try our DSEAR gap analysis program as an audit.
If you want to know more about DSEAR implementation, we also offer a 3 day DSEAR course as an introduction to the technical fields required to be managed or implemented.
The method of compliance is a fully documented system that covers all aspects of explosion safety (Often called and EPD, Explosion Protection Document). On Completion, the EPD must be signed off by someone who is competent in the field of explosion prevention such as ExVeritas (a UK ATEX Notified Body).
ExVeritas are not ‘health and safety’ consultants, we are a highly accredited technical organisation of professional Engineers who implement DSEAR as core business. We have being doing this for over 20 years and are one of the most credible organisations in this field.
We have fully implemented and documented DSEAR and ATEX for many sites including all risk assessments, area classification and full procedural documentation. Our team of experts quickly and efficiently build explosion safety measures that meet legislative requirements and minimise ongoing cost or business impact.
We can cover all necessary areas to the necessary depth (which will be determined initially based on the consequence analysis)
- DSEAR Risk Assessment (consequence analysis)
- Area Classification
- Ignition Hazards (ATEX Equipment, EPL)
- ATEX Installation and Inventory (asset register)
- ATEX Inspection
- ATEX Maintenance
- ATEX Training & Competence
