The complexities of DSEAR risk assessments can make them technical challenging and time consuming. However, not only is this a legal requirement but detailed risk assessment by expert specialist can help you to protect your workforce and protect your business. Recovering from a major fire or explosion incident may simply be beyond your business’s resources.
Are you finding the requirements difficult to understand and you don’t know what you need to do to comply; then specialist advice is available for you. The best advice possible it important but equally, we realise you need to work within a reasonable budget. You will find we fit that bill and should be able to quote you price that you can afford.
A Hazardous Area Classification should only be carried out if dangerous substances and/or sources of release cannot be eliminated.
The first step is to assess the probability of an explosive atmosphere being present, e.g. Zone 0/20 etc.
The second step is to define the size of each zone.
We are familiar with the requirements for defining the required probabilities and the zone sizing making use of IEC/ISO standards, as well as methods developed from our own study of many technical papers.
Where a hazardous area exists it is usually necessary to carry out a detailed assessment of the potential ignition sources.
For majority explosions resulting from gases, vapours, mist and dust the vast majority sources of ignition arise from non-electrical equipment.
Our detailed understanding of these ignition sources allow us to efficiently carry out the required ignition assessment to ensure that all sources of ignition are eliminated as far as practical.
