Audit and Survey
System Audit & Survey – HSE and DSEAR / ATEX Regulations 2002DSEAR (Dangerous Substances & Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002) sets out the legal requirement for Thermal Fluid Systems and Representative Fluid Analysis. Health and safety legislation requires that employers provide a safe working environment. DSEAR (ATEX/CAD in Europe) sets out a mechanism for minimising the risks where flammable materials are handled which could create an explosive atmosphere. Employers have a legal obligation not only to comply with this but to prepare and maintain documentary evidence.
