Applicable laws and regulations on use of gas and identification of various gasses in workplace. The importance of the use of gas detector both at home in at workplace. The explosive limit of various types of gas. The element of fire -Combustion Triangle. Advantages and disadvantages of types of gas detectors, e. g. Pellistor and IR Gas Detector Comparison between Safe Area and Hazardous Areas. NOTE. Am happy going through this course. It revealed hiding knowledge that was lacking as far as gas monitoring and testing. I thank the team to put this together. Good work and keep it up.
