Why use portable gas detectors when working in confined spaces?
Why use portable gas detectors when working in confined spaces? Confined space entry is one of the most challenging issues faced by workers today. Storage tanks, sewers, boilers, ship voids, and tunnels are things that we commonly consider confined spaces. Confined space gas risks can be divided into three categories: Combustible gas, toxic gas and oxygen deficiency.
When you’ve identified a confined space, you want to test the area appropriately before you go in and make sure that you perform continuous monitoring to keep yourself safe.
Sampling the atmosphere from outside the space using a portable gas detector with a sample pump is the preferred method of pre-entry testing and is definitely considered to be the best practice. Ease of use, with one button operation means minimal training is required while increased safety is ensured.
