Public utilities and companies that deal with or provide electricity, gas, power, water, and transport face a lot of atmospheric hazards, and use a lot of gas detection instruments! In this webinar we will focus on gas detection issues that confront utility and transportation industry companies, and important questions to investigate and understand when assessing a gas detection program and considering changes to improve worker safety and performance.
Anticipate and address gas detection issues before accidents occur, especially in activities that introduce a source of ignition or additional entry into the environment, as atmospheric hazards are a continuous concern in the utilities and transportation sectors.
Add the capabilities in responding to specific hazards that may be introduced by certain activities or chemicals used in the process to the gas detection and industrial hygiene requirements.
Ensure that workers are not exposed to hazardous conditions or toxic exposure limits by documenting the industrial hygiene requirements.
Comply with regulatory requirements that may be driven by EPA, such as monitoring systems to detect leaking valves that allow natural gas to escape into the atmosphere.
Use appropriate personal protection equipment and avoid storing portable gas detectors with materials that may damage their sensors, such as RTV silicone.
