3 Elements of a Successful Gas Detection Program (EU/OSHA)

Safety professionals recognize that gas detection is a critical part of their safety program. Having a solution one can trust brings peace of mind that workers and worksites are safeguarded. Importantly, creating a winning health and safety initiative requires alignment of three factors: subject matter expertise, technology that works, and a human-centered approach.

  1. Subject Matter ExpertisePortable gas detectors help to protect workers and worksites from invisible dangers. In order to have a safe, trusted gas detection program, safety professionals need to ensure that workers have the tools and training they need to make safe, compliant choices aligned with corporate safety policies and government regulations. But gas detectors require attention, administration, record keeping, and more. Therefore, a successful gas detection solution starts with full and deep understanding of those challenges safety professionals face on a daily basis. Allowing them to simultaneously navigate these multiple factors is paramount. As such, by providing them with innovative solutions, companies can enable their safety professional to achieve their safety goals and improve safety outcomes. MSA is a market leader in gas detection with over 100 years of technical expertise in worker and worksites safety. MSA has been providing the market with a gas detection solution that makes a significant, positive difference on safety programs. This is enabled through technology, which adds an additional layer of protection to gas detection programs.
  2. Technology that Works
    Having technology that works at hand brings peace of mind. A successful gas detection program fulfils safety professionals’ expectations and objectives, is easy to use and it improves safety outcomes. More specifically, when combining gas detection equipment and sensor technology with software technology, can result in outcomes such as:

    • Safety process improvements
    • Informed decision making
    • Drive worker compliance and accountability
    • Maximize gas detector uptime
    • Identify training opportunities
    • Record keeping compliance
    • Real-time alarm alerts World-class MSA detection equipment combined with Safety io Grid services puts detection data to work for stakeholders in charge of safety. The Safety io Grid software has a user-friendly interface that helps create a comprehensive picture and streamline the gas detection program.
  3. Human-Centered ApproachA human-centric approach to safety product design and development begins with understanding both worker needs and expectations, then translating those understandings into beneficial product features; features that allow the worker to focus on the task or job at hand. A good gas detection program is devised bearing human safety in mind. However, it’s not just about safety, it’s about giving them the tools to get the job done effectively and efficiently. The right gas detection program uses data to help safety professionals to make informed decisions. MSA and Safety io teams work closely with safety professionals and their peers to help transform their gas detection program into an empowering safety platform. The triple alignment between the three elements – subject matter expertise, technology that works and, human-centered approach – are the cornerstones of a successful gas detection program. With the MSA + Safety io solution, you have it all.
