Gas Detection Systems and Carbon Monoxide Facts

Every day, managers are faced with issues related to keeping their employees safe. Aside from the standard PPE, what about protecting your employees from the very air they are breathing? Certain manufacturing and/or production processes can create harmful gases, as can different lab experiments among many other scenarios that employees find themselves in during their work. Basic gas monitors can provide precise, low-cost, low-level monitoring of a variety of gases such as hydrocarbons, solvents, alcohols, and toxic gases.

Is your company prepared for a carbon monoxide leak? If undetected, carbon monoxide can build up inside your building until it reaches deadly levels for living beings. Carbon Monoxide has no smell. If there is a carbon monoxide leak in your building, you won’t know unless there is a carbon monoxide detector that sounds an alarm. That is why it’s important to contact Reliable Fire & Security for carbon monoxide detector installation and maintenance.

Carbon monoxide can be deadly. It is caused by breathing in carbon monoxide, which blocks the body’s absorption of oxygen. If you or someone you know has carbon monoxide poisoning, call 911 and seek emergency medical treatment.

Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Weakness
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Chest pain

Carbon monoxide poisoning can occur during variable lengths of time.

Depending on the severity of the leak, carbon monoxide poisoning  can happen over a short or long period. This is why you need to make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are always in working order. A small leak may go undetected for a while, creating health risks for you and your employees. If you suspect you or a coworker may have carbon monoxide poisoning, call 911 immediately.
