DSEAR (ATEX) and Hazardous Area Classification (HAC)
What is DSEAR?
DSEAR stands for the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002. It enacts, in the UK, the original requirements of the European Union (EU) ATEX directives:
- ATEX 95 Equipment Directive 94/9/EC, on equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres
- ATEX 137 Workplace Directive 99/92/EC, on minimum requirements for improving the health and safety protection of workers potentially at risk from explosive atmospheres
- ATEX 95 was replaced by ATEX -2014/34/EU which was implemented into law in the UK (SI 2016 No. 1107) in 2016
Control of Major Accidents and Hazards (COMAH)
The COMAH regulations aim to prevent major accidents and implement measures to limit the effects on people and the environment if one were to occur.
There are two categories of COMAH application; lower tier and upper tier. The simpler requirements apply to lower tier operators. These businesses must consider the potential for a major accident arising from their work activities and must produce a major accident prevention policy (MAPP) describing their approach to controlling the risks.
