A World First for Portable Wireless Confined Space Gas Detection

While technology has done an incredible job of replacing the days of the “canary in the coal mine”, industrial gas leaks continue to cause significant worker injuries and costly downtime for plants.

Industrial gas leaks can cause poisoning, contamination and explosions. Therefore, for employees working in these potentially hazardous environments, there is an immediate need for efficient and effective gas detection systems that ensure their safety.  

According to WorkSafe Victoria’s Compliance Code for Confined Spaces, employers must ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, that all hazards associated with work in the confined space are identified before anyone enters the space.

In order to do this, businesses can employ a wireless confined space gas detection system with full tracking capabilities, real-time wireless connectivity to a central office, and data logging and recording that delivers simplified management and streamlined compliance. This provides the information needed to make fast decisions and respond quickly to increase worker safety and minimise asset loss.

Scalable Plant-Wide Gas Safety

ConneXt Pack – Confined Space is part of the Honeywell ConneXt Safety Solution – the world’s first wireless, plant-wide gas detection safety system – helping the industry to be prepared and stay prepared.

What does it do? – The turn-key product uses advanced wireless hazard data to alert attendants and workers about toxic gas contaminants, oxygen deficiencies and physiological stress. It also provides man-down alarms that mean faster response times, increased worker and asset safety and improved productivity in industrial environments.

Who does it benefit? – The ConneXt Pack – Confined Space system presents benefits to users, contractors, safety manager and organisations.

For users, using a system that monitors safety hazards reduces their stress and allows them to concentrate on completing tasks without interruption; ultimately reducing their time spent in a potentially dangerous location.

Contractors reduce costs while increasing compliance and competitiveness, as the ConneXt Pack – Confined Space system can be deployed rapidly without the need for extensive training and reduces the number of managers required.

With instant hazard alerts, safety managers are able to take timely action regarding rescues or required safety gear in various situations. Companies and organisations as a whole reduce their insurance costs, by having implemented an automated and reliable safety process that reduces the risk of injury and potential OHSA fines. 

RAE Systems by Honeywell’s real-time intelligent gas detection elevates compliance, productivity and most of all, plant-wide gas safety.
