DSEAR requirements apply to workplaces where a potentially explosive atmosphere may occur.

In DSEAR, an explosive atmosphere is defined as a mixture of dangerous substances under atmospheric conditions in the form of gases, vapours, mist or dusts. After an ignition has occurred, combustion spreads to the entire unburned mixture. This must be mitigated to ensure the safety of both personnel and the workplace.
