Join us for this comprehensive webinar on gas detection hazards and solutions in the oil and petrochemical industry, presented by Bob Henderson, President of GFG Instrumentation Inc. With over 38 years of experience in gas detection instruments design, marketing, and manufacturing, Bob is an industry expert who will share his knowledge and insights to help both oil and petrochemical professionals and safety equipment distributors.
The oil and petrochemical industry faces a wide range of atmospheric hazards at every stage, from exploration and production to refining and distribution. In this webinar, we aim to provide an overview of gas detection issues and answers from the perspective of workers, employers, contractors, and emergency responders. We will also provide a framework for assessing gas detection needs for self-assessment or as a guideline to better understand your customers' requirements.
The discussion will cover various gas detection requirements, including personal protection, production, process control, facilities safety, industrial hygiene, community issues, regulatory concerns, and disaster response planning. We will explore the advantages and drawbacks of both portable and fixed gas detection solutions and how the optimal solution often includes a combination of both.
Additionally, we will discuss the importance of understanding the specific activities and risks associated with atmospheric hazards in the oil and petrochemical industry. This knowledge will help you make informed decisions on how to improve your current gas detection practices, ensure regulatory compliance, and safeguard the health and safety of workers and the surrounding community.Whether you are an oil and petrochemical professional or a safety equipment distributor, this webinar will provide valuable information and insights on gas detection hazards and solutions. Join us to enhance your knowledge and equip yourself with the tools necessary to protect workers and mitigate risks in the oil and petrochemical industry.
