The Challenge

A visit was made to the Leicester Development Laboratory of OpSec in October 2017 to carry out a risk assessment in respect of the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR). DSEAR focus for this assessment was confined to a Development process using flammable solvents.

The Solution Provided

Resulting in one site visit and report, opportunities for improvement around ventilation, prevention of potentially explosive atmospheres, avoidance of ignition sources, as well as protective measures, including technical and organisational aspects were identified.

Included in the report was a prioritised recommendations plan for inclusion into corrective action budgets going forward.
