GAS TEST ATMOSPHERES

AIMS AND OUTCOMES

This course is designed to ensure that participants have the skills and knowledge required to test the working atmosphere, using electronic test apparatus, to find out if it is safe for the proposed work. It applies to situations where an individual may be required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere prior to entering a specific area or workspace. 

In a typical scenario, an individual may be required to carry out gas testing of an atmosphere prior to entering a specific area or workspace. This course trains personnel in the interpretation of readings and the taking of related actions based on the readings.

COURSE CONTENT

  • Read and interpret a meter and then communicate the conclusions
  • Interpretation and communication of results of sampling
  • Common chemical asphyxiates, including hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, and hydrogen sulfide 
  • Common irritants and corrosives, including chlorine, ammonia, and acid bases 
  • Common flammable gases, including acetylene, petroleum, methane, ethane, propane, and butane 
  • Narcotics (explosive range, upper and lower explosive limits) 
  • Exposure standards (time-weighted average, short term exposure limits, peak limitation values, the examination of toxic effect at the level of a range of flammable gases) 
  • Conditions under which atmospheres become hazardous 
  • Units of measurement used to express concentration of atmospheric contaminants (mg/cubic m. ppm, % v/v) 
  • Theoretical and Practical Assessments

PERFORMANCE CRITERIA

  • Prepare for gas testing 
  • Test gas 
  • Maintain equipment 
  • Correctly store equipment
