Personal CO Detection
ION Sciences’ ARA Personal Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detector
The Carbon Monoxide (CO) single gas detector is a cost-effective personal detector with 24 months or 36 months of continuous operation depending on whether the standard or hibernation model is chosen. This wearable gas detector has only one button to make use simple and alerts workers when concentration levels exceed set safety levels.
CO gas detectors such as ION Sciences’ ARA CO detector should be considered as they alert the personnel of dangerous levels of gas exposure. Devices with a fast response time and sturdy construction are important for use in harsh environments where CO may occur. ARA CO detectors help to protect yourself/your employers from this potentially lethal gas with a personal CO alarm.
How Can Employers Help Prevent CO Poisoning?
- Provide personal CO monitors with audible alarms if potential exposure to CO exists.
- Install effective ventilation system that will remove CO from work areas.
- Educate workers about the sources and conditions that may result in CO poisoning as well as the symptoms and control of CO exposure.
- Maintain equipment and appliances (e.g., water heaters, space heaters, cooking ranges) that can produce CO in good working order to promote their safe operation and to reduce CO formation.
