Protect Your Workers | OSHA Confined Space Monitoring

As an employer, it’s your job to provide your workers with a safe environment to perform their required job duties. Your employees are your most important asset, so their safety should always be your number one priority.
If your company requires workers to enter “confined spaces” ─ those technically large enough to enter to perform certain jobs, but not designed for human occupancy ─ it’s essential that you provide them with the proper level of protection. This includes spaces like manholes, tanks, tunnels, pipelines, ductwork, and more.
Permit-Required Confined Space
Certain types of confined spaces are considered a greater hazard than others. According to OSHA, the term “permit-required confined space,” is used to describe an area containing at least one of the following potential dangers:
Contains or has the potential to contain a hazardous atmosphere.
Contains a material that has the potential to engulf an entrant.
Walls converge inward or floors slope downward and taper into a smaller area which could trap or asphyxiate an entrant.
Contains any other recognized safety or health hazard, including unguarded machinery, exposed live wires, or heat stress.
If you require employees to enter spaces containing any of the above safety hazards, you must develop and implement a permit system prior to beginning work. This is used as a safeguard, to ensure all necessary steps have been taken to keep your team safe while performing work in a confined space. Supervisors must sign the permit, workers must have the opportunity to review it, and a copy must be posted at the entry point.
OSHA also requires you to create a detailed written permit space document, outlining all necessary processes and procedures for your team to stay safe while completing work of this nature. This document should be readily available to all impacted employees or their representatives.
Non-Permit-Required Confined Space
OSHA allows permit-required spaces to be reclassified as non-permit-required spaces if the following conditions are met:
The workspace poses no actual or potential hazards.
All hazards in the space can be eliminated without actually having to physically enter the space.
Forced-air ventilation to control hazards does not count as eliminating them.
A contractor must visit your worksite to verify these conditions are met. The certification must be available to employees prior to entrance.
Getting the job done right and making sure your team stays safe in the process should always be your main concern. OSHA puts these rules and regulations in place for one very good reason ─ to make your company a safe place to work.

Multi Parameter Comparison - Find the Best Water Quality Meters

Multi Parameter Comparison ─ Find the Best Water Quality Meters
When it comes to multi-parameter water quality meters, not all devices are created equally. There’s a wide-variety of meters on the market to choose from, so it’s important to take the time to choose the one that is best equipped to meet your needs.
New technological advances have made way for the creation of water-quality instruments containing multiple sensors, with the ability to read a variety of field measurements, including water temperature, dissolved oxygen concentrations, specific electrical conductance, pH, oxidation-reduction potential, turbidity, and more.
Take any of the following multi-parameter water quality meters out into the field with you for results you can rely on:
1) smarTROLL MP Handheld: Marketed as “ideal for groundwater quality sampling and surface-water monitoring applications,” it can measure up to 14 parameters. This tech-savvy device uses the iSitu Application that runs on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, guiding you through spot checks, calibrations, and data management, eliminating the need to drag bulky equipment with you into the field. The included Low Flow Application makes Low Flow sampling easier than ever.
2) Myron 6P : Both Ultrameter II models are known for their performance of ±1% of reading ─ not simply full scale. The device can display values of up to 9999, delivering resolution levels never seen in instruments in its price range. Each Ultrameter II can be supplied with certification of traceability and NIST traceable solutions to provide definitive calibration.
3) YSI Professional Plus: Use this device to measure a variety of combinations for dissolved oxygen, conductivity, specific conductance, salinity, resistivity, total dissolved solids (TDS), pH, ORP, pH/ORP combination, and temperature. The YSI Professional Plus is tough enough to stand strong in the field, smart enough to offer countless tech-savvy features, and is incredibly versatile.
4) Horiba U-53-2: Known for exceeding expectations in the field testing of ground water and surface water applications, the Horiba U-53 contains intuitive software assuring ease of use and operation efficiency. The device measures and displays 10 parameters concurrently, complete with newly designed control unit and sensor technology.
No matter what your budget, Eco-Rental Solutions has the multi parameter water quality meter to fit your needs.
