Three-day DSEAR training course launched

Published:  10 February, 2017

Dangerous Substance Control Ltd has launched a new three day DSEAR training course scheduled for the 25-27th April 2017. The three-day training programme explains the many hazards associated with the use of dangerous substances.

This course is aimed at those who have not yet undertaken a DSEAR risk assessment. It includes explanations and answers for questions such as: “What should I look for? How can failure occur? What should be done to prevent fire or explosion?”

The content depth and the number of topics covered in the new three-day course gives a greater understanding of ATEX and how it fits into the DSEAR equation. A section on ATEX classifications is included as well as featuring an in-depth look at dust. Explanations are provided on ATEX gas groups, Category-groups, Temperature ratings and so forth.

Reference is also drawn to the theoretical understanding of flammable vapours with examples of how the Lower Explosive Limit can be converted into a meaningful quantity or volume of chemical per cubic metre of space. This all combines to providing the data and answers required, to understanding the final section of the course – ‘How do I Zone my production operation?’

The course explains the differing control documents, BS60079-10, E.I.15, iGEM and demonstrates how some 14 differing factors, such as vapour density, pressure or temperature can affect the classification, the size and type of zone required.

Each delegate will receive a typical risk assessment template, along with a full and detailed 150 page training manual to assist with their learning. Working group activities are required as part of each days’ learning, which further promotes discussion and ideas on how to resolve typical problems associated with dangerous substance hazards.
