WHY DOES ATEX & DSEAR MATTER?
The distillation process is typically where drinks contain the highest concentrations of ethanol, posing the risk of explosion. There is also a risk of whisky evaporating through oak barrels during the aging process, which can also cause explosions.
These unique conditions mean distilleries are potentially explosive atmospheres and preventative measures must be taken under ATEX and DSEAR regulations. This adds to the complexity of occupational health and safety considerations for employers, who have an obligation to protect the health and safety of their workers.
Aside from the safety aspect, any explosion from flammable liquids in a distillery will cause damage to stock and property, and likely lead to reputational damage too.
