Solutions for Gas and Steam

You can count on our knowledge and expertise to find the ideal solution for any situation you may encounter.

Protecting workers from gas and steam exposure is an employer’s responsibility. Because they are part of chemical agents, they can be toxic and explosive to a certain degree. Depending on their chemical composition, they can affect a person’s health differently, from minor irritations and discomfort to fatal asphyxia and cancer.

For these reasons, evaluating gas and vapour is vital for everyone’s safety. Sampling and analysis must be done by following rigorous methods to collect information properly. Santinel can take charge of every stage, including choosing the right PPE for each product and its concentration.

Furthermore, our experts can analyze your WHMIS Material Safety Data Sheets to find the appropriate sampling and measuring methods using a direct reading device, sampling on a specific substrate compatible with the required laboratory analyses.

If your company needs training, our team will develop a respiratory protection program and train your employees and supervisors. If need be, they can confirm your business’ compliance with prevention standards, and if not, they will recommend preventive measures or adjustments.
