Industrial Scientific, the global leader in gas detection, today introduced a new blog featuring expert content on topics ranging from gas detector education to industry trends and new technologies. In addition to publishing helpful articles, The Monitor’s expert authors will answer reader-submitted questions on the blog.  

The Monitor is an expansion of Industrial Scientific’s AskDave blog, which began in July 2011. After several successful years, the blog will now feature a broad range of gas detection experts and a new look and feel. Readers are encouraged to subscribe to the blog’s newsletter, which includes a monthly roundup of recent articles.

“We want our blog to be an easy-to-use reference tool especially for people who are using their mobile phones or tablets. Short articles that answer their gas detection questions, provide best practices, and tell them what’s new will help to improve overall safety in the workplace,” said Tom Henson, vice president, marketing.    

Examples of recent posts on The Monitor include:

  • Where Do You Wear Your Gas Detector?
  • One Size Fits All Gas Detection - The Wrong Prescription
  • New Confined Spaces in Construction Standard - Frequently Asked Questions

“We know that most people who are required to use gas detectors are experts in other areas. We want to make learning the basics of gas detection as simple and convenient as possible,” said Justin McElhattan, president and CEO.
