Gas Detection Equipment

What Are Gas Detectors? Gas detectors are safety devices that alert the user when dangerous amounts of flammable or toxic gases are prevalent or if oxygen levels drop below an acceptable level. This allows for the activation of countermeasures to minimise a hazardous situation for employees, assets and the environment. When Should Gas Detectors Be Used? Gas detectors must be used in any application where persons may come into contact with flammable or toxic gases and vapours, or if there is a risk of oxygen deficiency. You should never rely entirely on your sense of smell. At lethal doses, many gases and vapours are unable to be detected by scent. Types of Gas Detectors Portable Portable

Sun Protection on Industrial Worksites

StartFragment Even when sunscreen is applied it is important to find shade where possible. With hats or hard hat brims that conveniently clip onto your hard hat, you can take the shade with you. Hats protect some of the most sensitive skin, such as the scalp, nose, ears and neck, from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. These areas of the skin are often forgotten when applying sunscreen, but burn easily and are common sites for melanomas. Wide brims and hats are also constructed from either closely woven fabric or polyurethane, which effectively stop UV radiation from hitting the skin. Contact the ATOM Safety team for more sun safe tips for your workplace. EndFragment
