DSEAR Why Dodman?
Dodman has expertise in both food manufacturing and the complexities of DSEAR compliance. Furthermore, Dodman have the capability to fulfil plant upgrades necessary to achieve compliance using in-house design, manufacturing, and installation teams to deliver a complete turnkey solution. Dodman will complete DSEAR projects by issuing a certificate of compliance. Because Dodman only works in the food industry, we understand food processing, handling and the constraints food production companies work with daily.
Dodman does not offer company-wide DSEAR compliance audits, this work is usually provided by consultants such as Gexcon or ExVeritas. These audits identify areas of non-compliance but offer only outline guidance for implementation. Dodman’s bridge the gap between the initial audit and the certification of the system.
Dodman has completed extensive DSEAR upgrade works for several large food manufacturing companies. DSEAR projects amounted to more than 20% of Dodman business in 2019-2020. These projects have included pneumatic conveying, storage and feeding vessels, mixers, dust collectors and local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems. Dodman works closely with all specialist ATEX equipment suppliers and specialist test facilities.
Our personnel have undertaken extensive training including the Compex Ex12, Hazardous Area Classification and Compex ExF for site supervision. All DSEAR projects are supervised by a Chartered Engineer. All our engineers receive regular refreshment training.
Dodman is unique in being able to offer expertise in food handling knowledge, DSEAR consultancy and implementation, manufacturing and installation. A certificate of DSEAR compliance is issued providing peace of mind that the work has been done correctly.
