- Petrol gives off flammable vapour
Petrol is a dangerous substance and is a highly flammable liquid which can give off flammable vapour, even at very low temperatures. This means there is always a risk of fire and explosion when a source of ignition is present and when ignited it can quickly cause fire, injury and loss of life. If you are storing and dispensing petrol within the workplace it is essential that your electrical works are complying with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), and other legislation specifically for controlling petrol storage and the suitable containers for storing petrol in
- What DSEAR Regulations 2002 concern
The DSEAR Regulations 2002 are concerned with protection against risks from fire, explosion and similar events arising from dangerous substances. From June 2015 DSEAR also covers gases under pressure and substances that are corrosive to metals. This is to allow for changes in the EU Chemical Agents Directive the physical hazards aspects of which are enacted in Great Britain through DSEAR.
- The minimum requirements for protection of workers
There are minimum requirements for the protection of workers from fire and explosion risks related to dangerous substances and potentially explosive atmospheres including gases under pressure and substances corrosive to metals. Ensure that you are controlling the risks from these hazards.
- What DSEAR requires
DSEAR require that any workplace where explosive atmospheres may occur are classified into hazardous zones based on the risk of an explosion occurring, and protected from sources of ignition by selecting equipment and protective systems on the basis of the categories set out in the Equipment and Protective Systems for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres Regulations (EPS)
