Understanding gas detection in confined spaces
Nov 26 2021
The first step to work safely in confined spaces is to understand what confined spaces are, because they are not necessarily “confined“.
They are fully or partially enclosed spaces, which are not primarily designed or intended for permanent or continuous human occupancy. Often access or egress is limited or restricted and there is a potential health and safety risk to life due to lack of oxygen, exposure to toxic gas or the presence of flammable gases. But there is more. Even their design and construction, the characteristics of the material or substances within as well as the type of work activities envisaged, can pose a danger.
It is crucial to educate your workers about the safety dos and don‘ts for working in confined spaces and that they wear an appropriate portable gas detection device. The use of a G999 series multi-gas detector with integrated pump for confined space clearance measurements from GfG ensures that personnel are monitored accurately and have all workers entering.
