Case Studies » Advanced Medical Solutions

The challenge

A visit was made to Advanced Medical Solutions in the South West, in August 2015 to consider compliance with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR).

It was found that routine laboratory operations involved potentially-hazardous substances, including highly flammable liquids.

The business was implementing process change and required guidance with how best to safely achieve this.

The solution provided

A detailed review of all operations involving the use of hazardous liquids and gases was undertaken; additionally the suitability of storage was also looked at.

From the survey and by establishing a close working relationship with key personnel a comprehensive assessment was completed and a report issued to identify hazardous zoning requirements and opportunities for improvement.

Further remote support to the client has helped to clarify a number of questions the business had, and ensured that they can move forwards with confidence of being compliant with DSEAR.

What Advanced Medical Solutions said:

Our business identified the importance of compliance with DSEAR and needed professional assistance so turned to MESH. They provided a comprehensive review of our laboratory operations and storage of flammables; from which a detailed report was issued. Their consultant provided prompt professional support to our questions and issued an action plan for our business to work with. We would recommend their services to others.
