Overview Gas detectors (or gas monitors) are critical pieces of safety equipment used to protect life and property. Using visual and audible alarms, they warn users of atmospheric hazards including dangerous levels of toxic and explosive gases and low oxygen levels. Personal and area gas detectors offer a trustworthy solution for detecting gases that may be invisible and odorless.
The training course explains the basics for the use, calibration and daily maintenance of the current portable gas detectors and their accessories.
