Having the right gas monitor is important to your company. It protects your employees from the possibility of inhaling toxic gasses or being exposed to them. Under the right circumstances, it can also prevent explosions.
Many varieties are available in the market today, and choosing the wrong one could harm your employees. However, it’s not always easy to determine what kind of monitor to buy. Here are a couple of tips to help you decide which one to get.
- Portability – Portability is a big factor in choosing a monitor. There are instances where a monitor has to constantly check the same environment, in which case a stationary gas detector would be beneficial. Meanwhile, sometimes you need a gas monitor that could be used in multiple places, so it would be ideal if it is portable and lightweight enough to be carried by your employees. In this case, you have an option between a portable handheld detector or a personal monitor that your employees can clip on their belts.
- Single or multi-gas detector – Next, it would depend on how many gases you have to monitor regularly. Single gas detectors are equipped to monitor just a specific kind of gas, while a multi-gas detector can keep you updated on several kinds of gases in the environment.
Before deciding which gas monitor to get, you need to determine what kind of gases you need to monitor in your workplace. Only then would you be able to decide on which one you need for your company.
