Workplaces can be dangerous if flammable gases, mists, vapours, or combustible dust are present, as they can cause explosive atmospheres. These explosions can be deadly, cause severe injuries, and result in significant damage.
The Law requires that employers eliminate or adequately manage any potential hazards from explosive atmospheres within the workplace according to the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR). When choosing equipment and protective systems for designated areas, following the guidelines outlined in the 1996 Equipment and Protective Systems Regulations for Use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres is essential.
