The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (DSEAR) require that areas where accidental releases of dangerous substances could occur are identified and classified according to the likelihood of the formation of a flammable atmosphere. Within classified areas sources of ignition should be controlled. This course will provide delegates with the knowledge to carry out straightforward hazardous area classification in accordance with commonly used standards or to act as an intelligent customer when contracting others to deliver this role.
This course is suitable for all those who may be asked to carry out hazardous area classification as part of a DSEAR assessment including process safety and electrical engineers and health and safety practitioners.
