Personal gas monitors are required to protect employees from hazardous gases while conducting work across a number of South West Water’s drinking water and waste sites. The company’s gas detector fleet was nearing end of life and the team feared that their instruments were no longer reliable.
The team found it difficult to keep up with the maintenance tasks required of their fleet such as instrument bump testing and calibration. When an instrument was in need of repair, it was sent out to a third party resulting in instrument downtime and increased costs.
South West Water provides drinking water and waste services throughout the South Western parts of the United Kingdom.
