Gas Detection and Air Monitoring
Many industrial workplaces (especially confined spaces) may be susceptible to contamination by various gases. If undetected, these noxious gases may cause a deterioration in air quality leading to respiratory issues in workers or an increased risk of fire or explosion. By periodically testing for air quality and the presence of noxious gases with on-site gas detection equipment, workers trained in gas detection can reduce the hazards posed by dangerous gases in the workplace.
The half-day Gas Detection and Air Monitoring Training course educates trainees on the types of noxious and flammable gases that can be found in the workplace, the specific associated risks of each gas, and the level (in parts-per-million) at which each gas poses a threat. They also learn which types of workplaces are vulnerable to specific gases. In addition, students learn the proper calibration, use and maintenance of gas detection monitors, including proper documentation of detection results and how to respond when readings reach exposure limits. Trainees leave the course qualified to use gas detection monitors on-site.
