General Industry – Gases Exposure & Detection Guidelines
On the job, it is important to maintain the highest possible levels of safety in order to reduce workplace incidents and eliminate injuries. In addition to ensuring employees wear all proper safety gear, such as boots and hard hats, it is necessary to use equipment that is designed to promote the wellbeing of your crew.
Gases and other toxic substances that are common in industrial work can have a wide range of physiological effects on human health, which is why OSHA has established regulations governing the acceptable levels of exposure to these gases without being harmful. By following these rules, workers are able to discontinue work while exposure levels are too high.
To assist, Premier Safety & Service, Inc. sells and rents out equipment that is designed to detect the presence of certain toxic gases. As a result, organizations see measurements in real-time, so workers are protected, and risk of exposure is decreased.
