The U.K NO1 DSEAR Risk Assessment Specialists

Case Studies » DS Smith - Sittingbourne

The Challenge

DS Smith’s Kelmsley mill continuously produces card and cardboard for the packaging markets. An internal audit identified a requirement for the powder storage and handling facilities to have DSEAR risk assessments.

The Solution

A visit was carried out to site in July 2017 to survey and assess the starch storage, handling and mixing facilities around site. As part of the gap analysis, many opportunities were identified for improvement to both preventative and protective measures to ensure compliance with DSEAR met.

Hazardous Area Classification tables and drawings were produced, along with the risk assessment and resultant prioritised recommendations table.
