One of the key requirements of DSEAR for the management of safety is to ensure that risks are assessed and actions taken on the outcome of the risk assessments. This includes the ignition assessment of non-electrical equipment in flammable atmospheres, to ensure that current practices are acceptable, and highlight if any outstanding or corrective actions need to be undertaken.

The objective is to assess items of existing non-electrical equipment and develop risk assessments for each item of equipment in its given location, typically using the appropriate sections of BS EN 13463 as a guide, as well as area classification reports and drawings.

Non-electrical equipment already installed on site will be subject to a ‘retrospective’ risk assessment to ensure it can meet with the DSEAR regulations.
