We Work in a Hazardous Universe


One of the downsides of modern technology is that many production processes use hazardous feedstocks and generate hazardous gases as by-products. Worse, often we are unaware that some of these pollutants are created or we fail to realize how truly dangerous some of the gases we encounter on a daily basis are. For example, the extremely hazardous hydride, stibine, can be created by simply overcharging a wet cell battery. How often do we leave these batteries connected to a charger beyond the full charge point? Though stibine can kill instantly, it also can leave workers with serious lifelong health problems.

In this section we try to make safety information available on many common dangerous gases. We explain the risks, the toxic work level, conditions to avoid, and proper abatement methods. Browse our information center. If you have questions please call or write us.
