A 'close shave' in New Zealand - confined spaces and CO2

04 May, 2011 | Supplied by: MSA Australia Pty Ltd

BPO Ltd of Hamilton, New Zealand, environmental consultants, purchased a confined space harness, rig and gas detector back in 2001 because it was a requirement of one of their clients. The company undertook confined space training to the AS/NZS standards for the same reason. BPO saw the equipment and procedures more as a competitive edge rather than as a necessity and, for this reason, always followed the procedures and used the equipment. The equipment was always looked after and inspection certificates were kept current. At the time, many companies regarded the whole confined space thing as a bit of an overreaction to the Aquatec disaster in Auckland.

Speed is important

10 February, 2011 | Supplied by: MSA Australia Pty Ltd

Few people stop to consider not only does a sensor respond, but how fast does it respond? The average walking speed for humans is 5 km per hour or 83 m per minute. Some gas detectors can take up to a minute or more to respond, that’s 80-odd meters later if you are walking into a hazard at normal pace. If not walking, it is up to a minute lost to take evasive action. Time is of the essence and evasive action taken sooner can and will prevent disaster.
