Industrial Scientific has announced that its gas detection as a service solution, known as iNet, was recognised as ‘Health & Safety Initiative of the Year’ at the Gulf Coast Oil & Gas Awards held in Texas last month.

The award recognises specific initiatives or products that have significantly reduced the risks to workers and/or members of the community in the Gulf Coast region. iNet helps keep workers safer by providing visibility into gas detector alarms, exposure and usage. The software-based service solves common challenges faced in gas-detection programs related to maintaining reliable equipment, and ensuring proper usage of instruments in the field.

“There are more than 90,000 gas detectors in more than 20 countries across a wide range of industries operating on iNet today,” said Justin McElhattan, Industrial Scientific’s president and CEO. “We are proud that in the US, iNet protects workers at companies representing almost half of all daily oil production.”

The Oil & Gas Awards recognise the achievements made within the upstream and midstream sectors of the oil and gas industry. The event in the Gulf Coast was the third of seven regional Oil & Gas Awards events to take place this year.
