This course covers DSEAR legislation, sources of release, risk assessment, hazardous area zoning for gas and vapour atmospheres, and ATEX equipment. Learning exercises and opportunities to discuss and develop the subject matter form an important part of the course.

ATEX (Appareils destinés à être utilisés en ATmosphères EXplosibles) identifies what equipment and work environment is allowed in an explosive atmosphere.

It is the common name given to EU directives aimed at improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk when working in explosive atmospheres.

The UK government’s DSEAR (Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres) legislation requires employers to control risks to safety from fire, explosions and substances corrosive to metals.
