Gas Testing Atmospheres Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of gas test?

To test the atmosphere in a confined space before entry to ensure it is safe to enter.

How do you test gas in a confined space?

Gas hazards are unpredictable and confined spaces are dangerous, making it very important for an initial gas test in the confined space prior to entry and to continuously monitor gas levels with a gas monitor. Monitors not only tell workers whether the atmosphere in a confined space is safe, but also how safe. Gas tests must be performed at 3 levels of the confined space as every gas has different properties and some are heavier than air and some are lighter than air.

What is gas Test Atmospheres?

Testing the working atmosphere to determine if it is safe for the proposed work. Testing involves the use of electronic test apparatus.

How long is gas Test Atmosphere valid for?

Your Statement of Attainment does not have an expiry date, however, industry standards recommend retraining every two years.

How do you use a gas tester?

To detect a gas which is lighter than air, place the detector at a high level. To detect a gas which is heavier than air, place the detector at a low level. If the gas density is close to air density, place detectors at both high, mid and low levels. Gas density increases when the temperature decreases.
