Nitrogen: Hazard in Focus
Nitrogen is an essential element to all forms of life but can also pose a threat. Known as the invisible killer, due to it’s odourless and tasteless nature, nitrogen gas can be lethal if inhaled in high concentrations.
Hydrogen Sulfide: Hazard in Focus
Hydrogen Sulfide is a naturally occurring chemical that can be produced by bacteria in low oxygen environments, used in many industries despite its hazardous nature.
Compressed Air Technology – Why is it Important for Safe Refuge?
Compressed air technology in refuge chambers is important to provide clean breathing air and maintain a positive internal pressure.
