This course is designed to cover awareness of the detection and control of flammable and toxic atmospheres. This information will help you remain safe while working around potentially dangerous gases. TThe features and operation of the most common detector tube devices (bellows and piston) and gas monitors (personal, portable, and fixed) is presented. The student will learn about explosive ranges, toxic atmospheres, vapour detection,oxygen levels, flammable substances, flammable gas principles, and much more!
Who should take this course?
Anyone entering a work site that requires any type of gas detection equipment. This equipment can be found on many sites including plant sites, drilling operations, servicing operations, pipeline operations, up stream and down stream oilfield operations, confined spaces, and more.
