Colourless and odourless, carbon dioxide (CO2) is a commonly found toxic gas that is difficult to detect without the use of a suitable gas detector. High levels of CO2 will displace the oxygen content to a dangerous level, which will cause headaches, dizziness, asphyxiation, confusion and eventually loss of consciousness. CO2 is naturally present in the air we breathe at a concentration of about 0.037%, but if that level rises to just 7%, death can occur within minutes.
Monitoring levels of CO2 in the atmosphere is vital for keeping workers safe. Providing workers with personal CO2 detectors allows each person to monitor their own exposure, which is a reliable method of ensuring safety. Check out our generous range of carbon dioxide monitors here.
