Ozone monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Ozone found in ambient air can have a direct affect on human health and also has the potential to create photochemical smog. It is for this reason that the U.S. EPA has set a one hour limit of 120 ppb and an 8 hour limit of 80 ppb. Ozone has been found to affect human health by harming the respiratory and immune system. People with pre-existing respiratory damage or diseases are more likely to suffer from the affects of ozone.

Oil Mist and VOC Collection

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Oil Mist is Unbreathable. Oil based cutting fluids are often used in CNC milling, machining and metalworking. During production, these processes can produce a mist that can threaten sensitive electronic circuitry and presents serious physical risks to employees (accidents from slipping, breathing hazards).? What are the risks in a workshop with oil mist? Exposure to oil mist for a prolonged period of time can cause a number of health issues. Dermatitis Eye, nose and throat irritation Damage to the respiratory system Bronchitis Bronchial asthma Chronic cough Slip hazards (falling, dropping of tools/materials)? How can you protect yourself?? Mist collectors are effective at capturing and filtering harmful oil mist pollution. They can either be installed on individual machines or to a central location. Having the correct oil mist filtration equipment installed will protect your employees from unnecessary health risks. In addition to this, it will also help to protect your business from long term liability and healthcare costs related to workplace air contamination.?

Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitoring

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many industrialized countries. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless and tasteless gas caused by the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas to the human body, when inhaled it binds to hemoglobin, myoglobin, and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase reducing oxygen storage, transport and respiration in these organelles.

SDS Authoring and Generation

by Quantum Compliance     based in Ann Arbor, MICHIGAN (USA)

The SDS Authoring and Generation module manages the creation, distribution, and storage of Safety Data Sheets (SDSs). Designed to meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements of a number of jurisdictions both domestic and foreign, the module dramatically reduces the cost and liability associated with typical SDS management programs. . By 2015, all SDS documents and labels must comply with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) classification standards. Features include: • Automatic flagging and documentation of first shipments, revised SDS, and no SDS within one year • Masked complexity (with access to full detail) • Protection of trade secrets by user-defined percent ranges, and the ability to hide proprietary chemical information • Cross referencing of business operating languages • Ability to update multiple SDS simultaneously SDS Authoring and Generation can be purchased as a standalone solution or as part of the Q EHS compliance software package.

Infrared Sources for Capnography

by Axetris Ag     based in Kaegiswil, SWITZERLAND

Capnography is the monitoring of the concentration or partial pressure of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the respiratory gases. The CO2 concentration during a single breath is measured in a high temporal resolution to monitor the condition of the lungs.

Disaster and Epidemic Response

by Omnitec Design, Inc.     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

Anywhere there is a large gathering of people, respiratory infections can be acquired due to exposure to airborne pathogenic microorganisms. To help prevent the spread of diseases the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that potential problem areas be isolated and the air purified by portable, HEPA air filtration equipment. OmniAire and OmniAire PAC portable HEPA air filtration machines provide a clean air supply necessary to protect the public in gathering areas such as schools, emergency shelters or temporary healthcare facilities. To comply with CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of disease and contamination of sensitive areas, OmniAire HEPA air filtration machines are commonly used to: -Create a negative air pressure in isolation containment -Supply purified air for required air changes (ACH) -Sanitize airflow in operating and patient’s rooms -Purify air in waiting rooms and public areas -Prevent contamination in compounding pharmacies

XRF analysis for lead paint

by Niton UK Limited     based in Woodmancott, Winchester, UNITED KINGDOM

Niton analysers facilitate direct surface testing for lead paint, testing for lead in dust wipes from surfaces, testing the lead content of soil in the surrounding area (containment) and the testing of lead content in filters from respirators or volume air samplers for worker/public protection.

Gas monitoring instruments and systems for compressed breathing air

by Gasmet Technologies Oy     based in Helsinki, FINLAND

Compressed breathing air is subject to strict limits of harmful contaminants defined in European standard EN 12021 and various defence standards such as DEF STAN 68-284 issue 3. The testing interval of breathing air compressors and associated equipment is 3 months and gases tested include carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oil vapour defined as hexane and heavier hydrocarbons. EN 12021 covers underwater applications including self-contained open circuit compressed gas breathing (SCUBA) and compressed gas line breathing (hard-helmet diving), respiratory equipment used on ground for escaping from toxic atmospheres and for working in contaminated atmospheres. It also covers breathing gas for hyperbaric operations and synthetic air. While EN 12021 does not cover aerospace applications, the British MOD publication DEF STAN 68-284 and its counterparts in other countries cover also the breathing gases used in aviation.

Dustless Lead Paint Removal & Nuclear Decon Tools for Lead Paint Removal

by Pentek Inc.     based in Coraopolis, PENNSYLVANIA (USA)

No respirator required. No containment structures. Osha, epa,  rcra & sspc compliance. Combine removal, containment and final packaging into a one-step process using Pentek’s complete lead paint abatement system. The fully integrated process reduces or eliminates the need for worker respiratory protection by reliably reducing hazardous dust emissions far below regulatory requirements.

Water Treatment Solutions for Fluoride Removal

by Adedge Water Technologies, LLC     based in Buford, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in the soil in some areas of the country. It can leach into the drinking water supply. At low levels, it is not considered to be harmful. In fact, many water treatment plants add fluoride to the water because fluoride has been shown to help decrease tooth decay. However, higher levels can be hazardous to our health.
