Personnel involved in the maintenance of drinking water and wastewater treatment systems are at risk of exposure to both toxic and combustible gases within many areas of a treatment system’s infrastructure. To mitigate the possibility of injury, property damage, or – at worst – fatality brought on from toxic and combustible gas leak exposure, it is vital for system operators to adopt gas leak safety practices to help ensure the health and well-being of both plant personnel and the environment in which they work.
This course is designed for all water and wastewater operations professionals in which such practices will be presented. The course will review strategies for gas leak monitoring and detection within a treatment system, as well as methods maintenance personnel should observe when working in areas where toxic or combustible gas leaks are a strong possibility. Options for gas leak detection instrumentation and systems will be discussed, along with basic theories and principles explaining how such equipment works. The configuration and maintenance of a plant’s gas leak detection infrastructure will be discussed within the context of keeping people and property protected and safe.
