The Challenge

A visit was made to Webro Cables and Connectors Ltd site, Nottingham in 2020 to consider compliance with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), incorporating Amendment 1: June 2015. At the site, Webro Cables and Connectors stores and distributes power and telecommunications cables and connectors to various industries. The focus of the assessment undertaken was battery charging activities and control of hydrogen gases.

The Solution provided

A key focus of the survey was to review the provision and suitability of ventilation and extraction across the various site charging operations and to identify where improvements were required.

The report provided a clear to follow action plan with suggested timescales for completion that Webro Cables and Connectors could work to. Importantly the report covers all key parts of the DSEAR hierarchy of controls: reduction of quantities, minimisation of release, minimisation of hazardous areas through ventilation, minimisation of ignition sources, etc.
