It is an important part of workplace safety to monitor the surroundings for hazardous gases, particularly when entering a confined space. Some gases, such as carbon monoxide, can be difficult to detect without gas detection & monitoring equipment. The difficult gases to detect often cannot be smelt, tasted, or seen, making them extremely hazardous.
To maintain the highest level of safety, a gas detector needs to be used to ensure there are no hazardous gases present. This is often done by a confined space standby officer that will also monitor the oxygen levels in the area. Because entering a confined space, particularly if there are hazardous gases present, can be quite dangerous, there is a fair amount of documentation required.
SSTC can supply all documentation required for working in a confined space, from isolation forms, confined space entry permits, risk assessment, safe work method statements and rescue plans. SSTC can also supply all your equipment needs for entering and exiting a confined space safely and efficiently. Some pieces of equipment we have to offer are tripods, full arrest, breathing apparatus, radio communication, harnesses, and much more to keep your site and workers safe when entering confined spaces.
