The potential for gas-related accidents is always present in industries where flammable or toxic gases are used or produced. A gas detection system can provide early warning of a gas leak so that employees can safely evacuate the area. A gas detection system also helps protect employees from the health hazards associated with exposure to certain gases. For example, exposure to hydrogen sulfide can cause respiratory problems, and exposure to carbon monoxide can cause brain damage. A gas leak can result in an explosion or fire in some cases. A gas system can help prevent these accidents by providing early warning of a gas leak.
A powerful detection system is also important for safety during emergencies such as fires or chemical spills. It can help emergency responders determine the safest way to approach the scene and avoid potentially dangerous situations.
