ClickCease FuelQuip DSEAR Surveys / ATEX Site Survey & Risk Assessment

Our extensive knowledge allows us to evaluate and deliver DSEAR Surveys (ATEX) and risk assessments to help you comply with the DSEAR Regulations 2002 and the European Directive 1999/92/EC.

If you store your own fuel onsite it is recommended to have your refuelling facilities annually inspected by a certified technician to ensure that your system is in good and safe working order.

Regular checks will show that you are conducting your duty of care and complying with due diligence requirements. Any potential problems can be detected early and addressed to make sure you are in accordance with the latest regulations.

Since the EU CLP Regulation increased the flashpoint of flammable liquids, Diesel has been reclassified as a flammable and combustible fuel.
As a result, Diesel is now categorised as a potentially explosive substance and must be considered accordingly when conducting risk assessments, audits or inspections.

To comply with the DSEAR (ATEX) regulations employers must:

  • Undertake a DSEAR (UK) or ATEX (Europe) risk assessment of all operations involving potentially dangerous substances.
  • Take actions to eliminate or reduce the risks presented by dangerous substances.
  • Undertake a hazardous area classification or hazardous area zoning
  • Ensure correctly rated electrical and mechanical equipment is used within the hazardous areas or zones
  • Produce hazardous area zoning drawings showing where the dangerous substances produce the explosive atmosphere
  • Provide assessments and arrangements to deal with accidents and emergencies
  • Provide information and DSEAR (ATEX) training to employees
  • Identify pipes and containers where these contain dangerous substances
  • Co-ordinate explosion protection measures where employers share the same workplace

If not done so already, FuelQuip advises that these issues are addressed immediately.


The DSEAR Regulations complement the requirement to manage risks under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 as well as the guidelines already set out by the Environment Agency (EA) and DEFRA.

Failure to comply with these guidelines, requirements and regulations could result in prosecution, crippling fines and even imprisonment.
