This consultative document seeks views on HSE’s proposed consolidated version of the following parts of the Approved Code of Practice on the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR). L134 – Design of plant, equipment and workplaces; L135 – Storage of dangerous substances; L136 – Control and mitigation measures; L137 – Safe maintenance, repair and cleaning procedures; L138 – Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres.
