WHAT IS GAS MONITORING?
Safety is the first step in everyone’s life. Going to work, school or to your local shopping centre, coming home safely is the number one thing we all want.
Having a fixed or portable gas monitor reading the toxic gas levels and alarming when there is a toxic hazardous substance in the area is important. Everyone is alerted and advised to evacuate safely when an alarm is raised. Accuracy, consistency and efficiency are the key aspects of a safe gas monitor.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
An alarm will be triggered when a gas level passes a limit to activate a warning alarm, also known as a “Low alarm” to notify any personnel in the area to be alerted that there is gas present and to start evacuating. Once the gas level reaches above the warning alarm it triggers the “High alarm”, meaning that the gas has reached a high concentration and is dangerous to the health of anyone if exposed to the excessive levels of toxic gases.
Toxic gases are an extreme hazard as you cannot see it, feel it or smell it before it’s too late. Some examples of where gas monitoring is recommended due to the poor quality of air are any confined space area such as coal mining, car parks, liquid nitrogen rooms or general maintenance cleaning areas.
