Top 3 Reasons Industrial Accidents Happen

Control Instruments positions itself as the application specialist in industrial safety, process, and environmental gas monitoring. Since 1969, we have been engineering and manufacturing solutions to both simple and complex gas monitoring problems. Our primary mission is to protect life and property from accidents caused by hazardous gases.

Studies have shown that practically all failures (accidents) can be traced back to human failures, in three particular areas:

Understanding Flammable Hazards

We will focus only on those flammable hazards involving flammable gases and vapors. The difference between a gas and a vapor is that vapors arise from liquids, whereas gases are normally in a gaseous state. Flammable vapors present additional sampling concerns (for example, we must prevent vapors from returning to the liquid state during sampling).
