Gas Detection in Confined Space
Your confined space operations require the use of gas detectors that can effectively protect your employees. Whatever the intervention (service, maintenance, etc.), it is essential that you can carry out a complete risk assessment, and that you are in a position to be able to alert your staff in the event of excessive gas concentrations.
What are the main risks in a confined space?
The main risks of confined space interventions are related to the excessive presence of toxic, flammable and explosive gases in your intervention areas, as well as an oxygen-deficient atmosphere:
- Intoxication by inhalation;
- Burns (sometimes fatal);
- Asphyxia, anoxia, hypoxia.
How do you prevent risks in confined spaces?
Several solutions allow you to secure your work in a confined space. These include the use of gas detectors to measure the concentrations present and to warn you of potential hazards.
Which gas detectors should you use?
Your interventions can be secured by portable gas detectors or construction beacons such as the BM 25. These autonomous devices provide you with optimal personal protection regardless of your operations in enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces: rescue, digging, welding, drilling, interventions in mines, pits, tanks, and wells…
Today, several ranges of portable gas detectors can meet the requirements of your confined space interventions. Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection recommends PS500 multi-gas detector or the PS200 multi-gas detector, the characteristics of which are precisely adapted to this type of risky operation.
From now on, enjoy the performance of our portable gas detectors to ensure the safety of your staff.
