Dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres policy

If you have flammable substances or potentially explosive atmospheres to contend with, you’ll need strict processes to avoid fires and explosions. Use our policy to outline your specific hazards and control measures.

Burning issue

You might use flammable gases such as propane, fuels or even keep explosives on your site. Or perhaps the risks of flammable atmospheres arise as a by-product of industrial processes or the treatment of sewage.

With our Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Policy you can set out your strategy for managing the dangers involved and identify where more detailed procedures and training are required.

Our document allows for a wide range of situations whether this subject is a major issue to you or a minor concern. Follow our instructions in italics to tailor the policy to your business.
