Description

This course covers DSEAR legislation, sources of release, risk assessment and 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.

Programme

Day 1: Dust explosion risk assessment and hazardous area training

  • Legislation requirements
  • What is a dust explosion?
  • Hazardous area zoning.
  • Risk assessment: Hazard identification, typical ignition sources, evaluation, mitigation measures

Day 2: Gas/vapour explosion and hazardous area zoning

  • What is a gas explosion? Gas and vapour explosion/video
  • Hazardous area zoning: sources and estimation of release
  • Hazardous area zoning: determination of zone

Day 3: Gas explosion risk assessment

  • Risk assessment: Hazard identification, typical ignition sources, evaluation, mitigation measures.
  • ATEX approved electrical and mechanical equipment
  • Typical DSEAR report layout
  • Workshop to discuss specific issues/Q&A

Intended Audience

Managerial staff or other personnel who are required to undertake risk assessments for potentially explosive dust, gas & vapour atmospheres and meet the ACOP definition of a ‘competent person’ who can verify the risk assessment and zoning.
