HSE Taking Comments on Harbor Hazmat Regs

The proposed regulations are relevant to anyone involved in the transport, storage, or handling of dangerous substances or goods in harbors and ports, including harbor authorities, stevedores, masters of vessels and their agents, shippers, and truck and rail operators, as well as anyone involved in loading or unloading explosives anywhere on the coast of Great Britain or in territorial waters.

Britain's Health and Safety Executive (HSE, the agency equivalent to OSHA in the United States) is taking comments until Dec. 23 on its proposed regulations to replace the Dangerous Substances in Harbour Areas Regulations 1987, known as DSHAR. The new regs are new shorter and updated. HSE also is seeking input on a shorter Approved Code of Practice to support the regulations.

According to the agency, these proposals maintain workers' existing health and safety protections in relation to dangerous substances in harbor areas in Great Britain; the proposed new regulations will be renamed the Dangerous Goods in Harbour Areas Regulations.

They are relevant to anyone involved in the transport, storage, or handling of dangerous substances or goods in harbors and ports, including harbor authorities, stevedores, masters of vessels and their agents, shippers, and truck and rail operators, as well as anyone involved in loading or unloading explosives anywhere on the coast of Great Britain or in territorial waters, according to HSE.

Responses should be emailed to DSHARreview@hse.gsi.gov.uk or sent by Dec. 23 to: DSHAR review team, Health and Safety Executive, 5S.3.18 Redgrave Court, Merton Road, Bootle, Merseyside L20 7HS.
