Detect Chemical Hazards & Strengthen Workplace Safety With Room Alert

According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), chemical hazards are present in 13% of all workplace fatalities. It is important for employers to prioritize workplace safety measures to prevent hazardous chemical leaks and protect the health and well-being of their workers. The best method for proactively detecting chemical leaks before downtime and injury occur is by installing Room Alert environment monitoring. The Room Alert environment monitoring platform offers several monitoring options that can help you identify the presence of an unexpected liquid, such as hazardous chemicals, within your facility as quickly as possible. Room Alert is the most cost-effective and reliable way to increase workplace safety and prevent injuries due to chemical hazards.

The most common causes of chemical leaks and spills in the workplace include human error, equipment failure, and inadequate safety procedures. The industries with the highest risk of chemical leaks and spills include manufacturing, transportation, and oil and gas production. In order to keep workers safe, employers need Room Alert to help them stay up to date on the conditions in their workplace environment. With the peace of mind that Room Alert provides, you can take comfort in knowing that you will be notified of any potential threats and therefore able to take corrective action before irreversible disaster strikes.

Room Alert Flood Sensors Aren’t Just For Water Detection…

Room Alert includes a comprehensive list of monitors, sensors, accessories and software that work together to oversee all of the environmental conditions within your organization that could lead to employee safety concerns. The most popular Room Alert sensor for detecting chemical leaks is the Flood Sensor with Cable. This sensor comes in a variety of cable lengths, with the ability to add a 50’ extension cable, so there is a solution for every application big or small. If the Flood Sensor’s cable comes into contact with a hazardous chemical or any other liquid, Room Alert will quickly notify your team via text or email. With valuable insight from Room Alert, you are now aware of the situation and can follow proper safety procedures to keep everyone in your facility safe. For example, if Room Alert detects a leak in your chemical storage room, it can immediately notify the maintenance department and help prevent workers from being exposed to the chemicals. Since Room Alert helped notify you in a timely manner, you can address the leak before it has a chance to spread and cause harm.

Similarly, the Flood Sensor (Spot) also provides real-time recognition in the presence of a chemical leak or any liquid in your facility. This sensor is a perfect option for low points on floors, such as in a laboratory, or specific areas where pumps or drainage are an issue. When placed directly on the floor, the Flood Sensor (Spot) is extremely accurate and can detect the presence of even a small amount of liquid.

In addition to monitoring for chemical leaks, Room Alert can help in many aspects of employee safety. For example, heat is the number one cause of weather-related death in the workplace. We have several features and capabilities that come standard in our Room Alert hardware and software to help employers maintain OSHA compliance and keep their workers safe from heat-related illnesses. There is a long list of environmental factors that can jeopardize worker safety from chemical leaks to slip & fall hazards, poor air circulation, smoke inhalation and many more. Our team is happy to work with you to understand exactly what your business needs to meet state/ federal requirements and keep your workplace safe.
