Scott Safety Gas Detection Reference Guide (click on title to read the complete reference guide)
Scott Safety is committed to the life safety of workers in potentially dangerous industries such as petrochemical, pharmaceutical, wastewater treatment, and chemical processing. The ability to detect and analyze unseen threats through reliable gas detection products can and will save lives.
The safety concerns with exposure to both toxic and combustible gases are the foundation of the need for reliable gas detection. Left undetected and
unmonitored, hazardous gases pose grave threats to our health and safety. Exposure to toxic gases can cause a wide range of health effects including
simple irritation, loss of consciousness, chronic illnesses, and even death. Combustible gases pose just as great a safety risk because of their potential
to ignite and cause massive destruction.
Advanced monitoring techniques provide opportunities for:
• Early Warning of Hazardous Conditions
• Intervention and Correction of the Causes of Hazardous Conditions
• Time for Evacuation from Hazardous Conditions.
