Purge testing is the process of purging an area of all gases to make sure you know which gases are moving through your gas delivery system. This is the air your gas detection equipment will test when workers are inside the space.
OSHA’s Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER 29 CFR 1910.120, 1926.65, EPA 40 CFR 311), aims at preventing or minimizing worker exposure to hazards during operations and emergency response to unplanned events such as releases or spills. It mandates training for various categories of workers including the First Responder.
Maintenance activities guarantee the availability, reliability and safety of production equipment. While performing their maintenance roles, technicians are exposed to hazardous energy sources or unexpected starting up of equipment. These conditions increase the risk of injury or death. To prevent such accidents, companies devise machine-specific lockout tagout (LOTO) procedures.
Gaslab Inc., a leader in gas sensing technologies, has released a new low-oxygen safety monitor that holds a sensor capable of measuring potentially dangerous oxygen levels in freezers and other low temperature applications.
Requests to ship hazardous and perishable goods across greater distances are increasing in frequency. With the surge of globalization, companies must contend with how to get fragile or potentially dangerous items to suppliers and end-users a world away.
Organizations are mandated by law to establish workplace safety programs to guarantee a safe and healthy work environment. Prioritizing safety in an organization reduces the number of work-related incidents and protects assets from damage.
For two centuries, workers in every industry and from every background have collectivized in order to secure safe and healthy working conditions. Huge leaps have been made in that time, but because around 15 people per day died on job sites in the U.S. in 2019, there is still much work to be done.

Through a series of complex chemical reactions (i.e., “carbonation”), CO2 can reduce concrete’s pH and increase its porosity – ultimately impairing the overall strength and durability of concrete. The phenomenon is hastened in humid climates and in large cities or industrial areas where fossil fuels are likely to be burned at higher rates.
