What did we do?

A visit was made to the English Spirit Distillery site, Halstead, Essex, on 8th March 2017 to consider compliance with the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), incorporating Amendment 1: June 2015. The site’s core business is the licenced production of distilled spirits for the commercial and retail alcoholic drinks markets.

Routine plant operations involved potentially-hazardous substances (principally LPG and ethanol, and other flammables). There was some storage and handling of combustible materials, and dispensing of flammable liquid carried out on-site.

MESH were required to complete a full DSEAR assessment of the site operations and prepare a detailed report with prioritised action plan to help the business towards compliance and best practice.

A review of progress was completed in January 2018 to sign off actions completed and provide further guidance to the business. This was important as the HSE had been involved.

What the client said

Many thanks for completion so quickly. Points noted with regard the HSE.
