  • An ambient indoor air environment is vital to ensure a safe and healthy workplace

    Indoor air quality (IAQ) relates to a number of environmental factors inside a building that can impinge on the health, comfort, or work performance of the building’s occupants. Monitoring IAQ is vital because it is estimated that the average person spends 90% of their time breathing “indoor air”. Poor IAQ is a contributing factor to both short and long-term health issues, these ...

  • PureAire’s Methyl Bromide Monitor Gains Exposure from the Department of Pesticide Regulation

    There has been an increased awareness for methyl bromide safety in the past few months. Over a year ago two employees at a cold storage warehouse got physically ill from high levels of methyl bromide. The Ch3br gas was off gassing from the products causing a higher than safe level for the employees. Commodities being shipped from overseas must be fumigated in ports, or warehouses upon arrival to ...

  • Why a CO2 monitor may be needed? Where carbon dioxide leaks occur

    Do you work with carbon dioxide (or CO2) in your industry? If so, then you may need a carbon dioxide monitor to check for gas leaks that could pose a hazard to your workplace safety.
