When working in or near to hazardous gases, wear a gas detector which will alarm once safe breathing levels are threatened.
Working with Gases
When hazardous and flammable gases pose a threat to your health, personal gas detectors should be worn for the continuous monitoring of personal space.
If the quality of breathing air is poor, SCBA must be considered to provide a continuous flow of breathable air.
Working in a Dusty Environment
Respirable dusts cause serious health issues within tract, bronchioles. Tasks such as welding, painting, or grinding can cause airborne dusts. To prevent these dusts from entering the nose and throat, a respirator must be worn to filter dust.
Escape hoods provide a compressed air supply in emergency situations. These sets are designed to be simple to don in emergency situations and can provide a safe escape from hazardous environments where breathing has become difficult or endangered from the threat of smoke or toxic gases.
The Trouble With Stubble
Respirators for Beards & Facial Hair
With the increasing popularity of beards and facial hair, or for those who have beards for religion, it is important to find a respirator that keeps you protected.
For operatives with beards and stubble, this can create a gap between the respiratory mask and the skin. A seal to the face can’t be achieved which means that it won’t work properly, therefore, it is not possible to effectively use any negative pressure respirator.
Tight-fitting facepieces will let hazardous air bypass the mask causing the inhalation of hazardous substances at work and resulting in serious lung conditions caused by inhaling dust and other contaminants.
In order to overcome this problem, a Powered Air Purifying Respirator (PAPR) can be used (with a connecting hose) and a suitable head-top such as a helmet with face shield, hood or visor. The PAPR does not require a face-fit test.
Case Study - CO2 In Breweries
Learn about the hidden dangers of carbon dioxide (CO2) in breweries and the essential measures to ensure safety. Uncontrolled levels of CO2 can lead to severe health hazards, even suffocation, making proper monitoring absolutely crucial. Discover how the accumulation of CO2 during fermentation and storage processes can create hazardous pockets. Implementing a comprehensive gas detection system, including fixed CO2 sensors and personal detectors, is crucial to protect brewery personnel.
Case Study - a1-cbiss Engineer a Brewery Carbon Dioxide Monitoring System
Discover how a1-cbiss helped two major breweries in the UK ensure health and safety compliance with a tailored Carbon Dioxide monitoring system. With elevated CO₂ levels during fermentation, a1-cbiss designed a solution using advanced gas detection technology. The system provides visual warnings, integrates with ventilation systems, and offers real-time data acquisition and reporting.
