What is the difference between a fire and an explosion?
An explosion occurs when energy moves quickly out from the source, often causing a shockwave. Fires happen when the three ingredients of heat, oxygen and fuel are present, causing an outbreak. Employers need to assess the risk of each of these separately and take all reasonable steps to avoid them.
What is DSEAR?
DSEAR means the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002. It is one of the main pieces of legislation covering explosions and fire safety in the workplace. Employers should familiarise themselves with the requirements of DSEAR and conduct a DSEAR risk assessment if appropriate for their workplace.
What should I do in an evacuation?
While evacuating a building, the most important thing to do is to stay calm and listen carefully to instructions. If you are in a position to assist others who may be struggling, do so safely and with regard to their wellbeing. Do not panic, and make your way in an orderly fashion to the meeting point.
