Updated guidance on dangerous substances in the workplace, including hazardous atmospheres, now available to download.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has consolidated five Approved Codes of Practice* under the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), to make it easier for employers to understand how to protect their workers from dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres.

The new guidance covers issues from plant design and operation, through to maintenance. Legal responsibilities to protect workers’ safety outlined in the DSEAR regulations are not altered in the redrafted ACOP. Some (but not all) of DSEAR covers hazardous atmospheres, notably in relation to ATEX, the name commonly given to the two European Directives for controlling explosive atmospheres.
