Course Description Millions of gas monitors (gas detection instruments) work every day, in various industries like Oil & Gas, Power, Paper, Petrochemicals, Wastewater treatment, Chemicals, Food, Pharma and Semiconductors, to detect the presence and level of hazardous & toxic gases, explosive vapors & fumes which are handled in these places. They also monitor workplace conditions and pollutants to ensure adherence to emission control norms. It is very essential, for professionals who work in these industries and who are actively involved in specifying, selecting, installing or calibrating these gas detection instruments, to know how these instruments work, what do they measure, how to select them, install them, calibrate them & maintain them in order to get best results. This course covers all of these aspects of Gas Monitors. The subject is explained by means of text, rich graphics, Flash based animations, real-life plant photos and videos and interactive simulation exercises. It makes the subject fun to learn and easy to grasp. There is also a self ‚Äìassessment test & a glossary. Many Industrial Safety & Health professionals would also find this course very useful.
