HSE InfoLine : 30 December, 2003  (New Product)
The Health and Safety Executive has today published the fifth and final approved code of practice supporting the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002.
The Health and Safety Executive has today published the fifth and final approved code of practice supporting the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002.

John Thompson, head of HSE's Chemical and Flammables Policy Division said:

'This ACOP is intended to help employers eliminate or reduce fire and explosion risks from dangerous substances. It contains practical guidance, such as what factors to consider when doing risk assessments, as well as approved code material, and it explains how DSEAR sits alongside other relevant law. The publication of this ACOP signals the final stage of HSE's review and reform of old legislation on flammable and explosive substances and their associated hazards. DSEAR and its ACOPs replace several sets of old regulations and other provisions; together they form a significant body of work and should help to maintain and improve safety standards for those who work with dangerous substances.'
