For years electricity has been generated from traditional fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas. Modern day power generation is quite different with renewable energy sources becoming more prevalent, modern day methods include biogas, wind, and solar etc.
All power stations, not matter what their chosen source of generation, can exhibit various occupational health and safety issues for workers. Hazards which face workers can include chlorine exposure, confined space problems and exhaust emissions.
Potential hazardous gases include Methane, Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen, Ammonia and others like CO2, CL2, ClO2, HCl, NO2, O3, SO2 and SO3.
Australian Dynamic Technologies supply a variety of fixed gas detection solutions designed to protect power station workers from toxic gases and oxygen depletion.
