Research shows that there was a common link to every fatality in a confined space environment over a two-year period – none of the 139 sites had confined space gas detectors or other early warning systems. More than half who died were rescuers.
When selecting a confined space gas detector one should not focus on just size, price and other features. Instead, buyers should watch out for how the device monitors oxygen deficiency or enrichment, toxics and combustible gases. A confined space gas detector ideally should sense all three of these common dangers.
John Morris Scientific has a great list of products including handheld, wearable, and wall-mounted devices from Cole-Parmer. Once you purchase, it is recommended that you test your confined space gas detector on a routine basis.
