COMPEX REFRESHER INTRODUCTION: Dangerous substances can put people?s safety at risk from fire and explosion. Under DSER (Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002) employers and the self-employed have a duty to protect people from risk of fire, explosion and similar events in the workplace. This includes members of the public who may come into contact with work activity. Dangerous Substances?

These includes such things as solvents, paints, varnishes, flammable gases, such as liquid petroleum gas (LPG), dusts from machining and sanding operations and dusts from foodstuffs.
