Choosing and Using the Best Gas Detection Technology for Specific Monitoring Applications
*Certificate of Completion will be available on the event console 


No single gas detector is universally perfect for all applications. The best gas detector is the one that does the best job of meeting the requirements for your monitoring needs. The LEL, O2, CO and H2S sensors used in most portable instruments are accurate, dependable, and can last for years in normal operation; but they have important limitations. An instrument that underestimates or fails to detect the right hazard can be the cause of accidents. It’s important to be aware of additional technologies such as substance-specific electrochemical sensors, infrared (IR) and photoionization (PID) sensors that can provide a solution when standard sensors are not the best choice.

  • What the sensors in your gas detectors can (and can’t) actually detect
  • Choosing the best sensor technologies for specific monitoring applications
  • The most common mistakes people make when using their gas detectors
  • Calibrating sensors to maximize accuracy
  • Where to set the alarms
  • Changes in the TLV® exposure limit for H2S, SO2 and NO2, and what to do about it
  • Times when infrared combustible gas sensors may be a better choice
  • Using PIDs for measurement of toxic VOCs like benzene

Why Flame Resistant Workwear? Understanding Workplace Hazards and OSHA Compliance

By defining the leading causes of flash fires, electric arc and molten metal splatter, we will address the ways in which companies can better protect their employees from such hazards through proper staff outfitting. In the topic, we will discuss the benefits of – and recent developments to – flame-resistant workwear and what to consider when creating a program for your employees.
