In hazard-prone industrial projects, some risks can be easier to overlook than others. That’s often the case with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are often not immediately noticeable but can be dangerous nonetheless.
For people who work outside, winter weather can pose a range of risks, including to your portable gas monitor. By following some simple tips, you can worry less about your portable gas monitor’s performance and trust that you can depend on it to prevent exposure to toxic or combustible gases.
Today, many industrial facilities use a variety of gas analyzer technologies to monitor for hazardous air pollutants whose levels are often regulated down to parts per million because of long-term exposure risks. So, what should a manufacturer look for when measuring low-level hazardous air pollutants in ambient air?
G7c personal wearable by Blackline Safety is the world’s first connected gas detector and lone worker safety monitor certified to the newly-upgraded BS 8484:2022, the standard that underpins the UK’s lone worker safety leadership.
While on the job, field service workers must spend a lot of time on the road and interact with electrical equipment, heavy machinery, and power tools that could post dangerous risks if not properly approached.
Safety managers should know how important it is to keep workers mobile in the field without leaving them vulnerable to hazardous gases. The technology behind portable gas detectors is getting smarter while the devices themselves are getting lighter.
