Gas Detection Training
IRP Approved | Enform Certified
Combustibility is a measure of how easily a substance will set on fire, through fire or combustion. This is an important property to consider when a substance is used for construction or is being stored.
A gas detector is a device that detects the presence of gases in an area, often as part of a safety system. This type of equipment is used to detect a gas leak and interface with a control system so a process can be automatically shut down. A gas detector can sound an alarm to operators in the area where the leak is occurring, giving them the opportunity to leave. This type of device is important because there are many gases that can be harmful to organic life, such as humans or animals.
This 8 hour Gas Detection Training course is designed to give the student an understanding of how to safely monitor and assess hazards and control flammable substances through lectures, demonstrations and hands-on practice.
Gas Detection Training Course Objectives
- Introduction to flammable substances
- Principles of flammable gas/vapour
- Care and preparation of combustible gas monitors
- Sampling strategies and interpretation of monitor readings
- Control methods for high combustible gas readings
Gas detectors can be used to detect combustible, flammable and toxic gases, and oxygen depletion. This type of device is used widely in industry and can be found in locations, such as on oil rigs, manufacturing facilities, plant sites and industrial locations.
This course has been designed to meet and exceed Occupational Health and Safety Guidelines, meets requirements as outlined in IRP 18 Fire and Explosion Management. Completing this course will improve your knowledge of an important part of workplace safety.
