In this webinar we examine gas detection issues and answers for the construction industry from the standpoint of construction workers, employers, contractors, and emergency responders.

Equipment and materials used in construction activities can expose workers to toxic contaminants like CO, H2S, NO2, solvents and other VOC vapors. Construction activities also often involve working in and around confined spaces.

OSHA 1926 Subpart AA, “Confined Spaces in Construction” includes many new gas detection requirements. Regulations require contractors to understand and follow the rules for permit required confined spaces, and to use instruments for explosive, toxic and oxygen monitoring to keep workers safe. Confined space requirements include emergency response as well as how to ensure proper communication between workers and contractors with different responsibilities. The regulations additionally include requirements for testing and maintaining your instruments.

Understanding, choosing, testing, and using the correct portable gas detector is vital to the safety of construction workers. This webinar provides an overview of these essential worker safety issues.
