Personal alert safety system

A PASS (personal alert safety system) – also known as DSU (distress signal unit) or ADSU (automatic distress signal unit) – is an electronical device that any isolated worker has to wear in risky situations. This personal safety system is able to alert if necessary.

In France as in many other European countries, clearly defined legal frameworks require that operators who are working alone have to wear personal alert safety systems.

PASS STANDARDS EXAMPLES

Requirements for PASS devices are controlled by standards associations, such as the National Fire Protection Association in the United States and the British Standards Institution. Standards published by these institutions establish minimum specifications, such as frequencies and audible alarm and pre-alarm levels, duration of time after lack of movement, intensity of visual alarm… 

National Fire Protection Association: NFPA 1982

This standard specifies that the device will go into pre-alarm mode after 20 seconds of inactivity and full alarm mode at 30 seconds of inactivity. The alarm can also be activated manually. The pre-alarm is required to reach a maximum level between 100 dba and 110 dba in six seconds. The primary alarm must have a minimum level of 95 dba at one meter and be able to maintain the level for at least one hour. 

British Standards Institution:  BS 10999-2010

This standard specifies a lack of movement for 30 seconds will cause a 10 second pre-alarm audible signal. If no movement occurs during this period then the unit will lock into full alarm. The unit can be manually set to full alarm by pressing a push-button.

ISOLATED WORKER PROTECTION

A PASS (personal alert safety system) – or also called DSU (distress signal unit) – is a device used by one or several workers who are out of sight. This alert system oftentimes features 2 alarms:

  • Manual or voluntary alarm activated by the user to ask for rescue in case of slight injury, attempt of aggression…
  • Automatic alarm activated in case of mandown and motionless situations, sudden increase of heat (explosion or fire), pullout…

Several versions are available from standard audiovisual alert unit up to enhanced versions with alarm report on a controller and GPS localization for immediate rescue intervention.

The OXYBABY O2/CO2 gas analyzer is a battery-powered portable device especially designed to monitor gases in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). The OXYBABY gas analyzer is a cost effective alternative to tabletop analyzers for example in line with a HACCP system. As this analyzer requires only a very small quantity of gas (less than 10 ml per sample), it can check even the smallest food packaging with small headspace.

This portable gas detector can swiftly and accurately monitor samples. It features a special function to avoid wrong results:  a permanent flow control with automatic alarm in case of needle or filter clogging. This device also allows the administration of up to 25 users and the classification of results for up to 100 product names and 50 packaging lines.

The OXYBABY headspace gas analyzer is perfectly suitable for fast and exact sample analysis in atmospheres between 0 and 40°C, directly at the food packaging machine, in stores and laboratories. This ergonomic analyzer can be used wherever results have to be recorded, for example in the food industry or in breweries.

According to the device version, the large integrated device data storage can log up to several hundred results and allows long export intervals. Every result can then be downloaded and analyzed on a computer via USB port. Alternatively a pressure indication can be selected.

Its large backlit graphic display allows easy readings in a multilingual menu including amongst other languages English, French, German and Spanish.

An optional barcode reader – which is available for 6.0 version only – enables easy reading on user and product. A Bluetooth interface – available in option as well – offers user wireless communication for example to a printer.

The devices is provided with a charging device, a carrying case, spare needles and filters and a set of 100 rubber seals.

Additional information

The Ventis Pro5 multi gas detector was especially designed to silmutaneously detect up to 5 gases among the combustible gases, NH3, CO, CO/H2S, H2S HCN, NO2, O2, SO2, CO2 and HC.

 

This flexible detector features a panic button to alert nearby teams when user is in distress. It also features a mandown alert function which is set to activate after a defined period of time without motion.

 

In case of anormal concentrations, powerful audible (95 dB à 10 cm) and visual (ultra-bright blue and red lights) alarms will alert any operator working in the area, even in high-noise and dark environments.

Custom alarm action messages like “EVACUATE” or “VENTILATE” can furthermore be configured in case of emergency situations in order to safely and quickly take corrective actions.

 

Made of polycarbonate with protective rubber overmold, this gas detector is available either in black or high-visibility safety orange versions and can be combined with the VSP slide-on pump. Its integrated data logger can record up to 3 months of events. Water and dust-resistant (IP68), the Ventis Pro5 can be used in pumped version for use in confined spaces or without pump as a personal protective equipment.

 

The Ventis Pro5 portable multi gas detector also features the LENS Wireless technology. LENS is the first wireless gas detection solution that allows personal monitors and area monitors to communicate gas readings and alarms with one another. This way, panic and mandown alarms will be communicated to other Ventos Pro detectors operating in the same area in order to alert everyone on the hazardous situations.

 

Lastly, the Ventis Pro5 benefits from the iAssign® technology for site and user follow-up. Thanks to this enhanced technology, every data recorded by the device will be assigned to the user ID. This process allows amongst other things users to wear several gas detectors within the same working day.
