Apollo Safety, Inc., providers of gas detection products and services for universities, hospitals, government operations and other organizations, recently announced the formation of a special division to serve waste management facilities throughout New England.
Focused on prevention, Apollo Safety has created a dedicated Waste Management Division to provide gas detection equipment, maintenance and monitoring services to this growing niche market. The new division caters to waste management facilities, including transfer stations and construction and demolition debris recycling facilities.
“Gas detection systems at waste disposal and recycling facilities are imperative for employee and public safety. The systems alarm at the first sign of trouble – such as carbon monoxide or other hazardous gas,” explained John V. Carvalho III, president of Apollo Safety.
Apollo Safety implemented a gas detection monitoring system at New Bedford Waste Services, the largest enclosed construction and demolition debris recycling facility in New England.
Gas Detection Systems
Apollo Safety’s offerings include a wide variety of portable and stationary gas detection systems, including brands such as Industrial Scientific, RAE Systems, RKI, and GMI. These systems are available for purchase or rental at weekly or monthly rates. Rental equipment is certified to NIST standards and is guaranteed for the entire rental period. Apollo Safety also utilizes wireless gas detection systems, which report directly back to a command post miles away at the first sign of trouble. The wireless systems provide the ability to check gas levels in real-time, with the security of knowing that headquarters has access to the same readings.
Apollo Safety provides waste disposal and recycling facilities with on-site installation, staff training and 24/7 service.
Carvalho continued, “The only way to know if a gas detection system is working is to test it with the appropriate gases. As experts in gas detection, we inspect, calibrate and test the systems on a regular schedule. By not having a routine maintenance system in place, the health and safety of everyone on site is at risk if the gas detection equipment is not functioning properly.”
