South West Water has recently implemented an Industrial Scientific iNet™ gas detection management program supplied by Hanley Technology. “iNet™ is a gas detection solution that exceeds the highest industry standards for monitoring gas hazards, maintaining gas detection equipment, and managing gas conditions in the workplace” said Chris Kennedy Managing Director of Hanley Technology. Currently there are over 70,000 instruments across 3300 locations globally on the iNet™ system and this continues to grow rapidly year on year. With our historical focus on safety and continuous improvement South West Water has been one of the safest companies to work for in our industry. “One of our biggest concerns was the management of our fleet and ensuring that all the detectors were fully operational and would alarm in the event of a gas exposure” said Sam Woollacott of South West Water. The iNet™ program continually monitors for conditions such as low, empty or expired calibration gas, marginal or failed sensors, and days since last calibration. The system incorporates a fully automated daily bump (function) test to ensure each detector is operational before it is used. Weekly e-mail reports are sent on the status of the instrument fleet and immediate reports are sent when a problem is detected. “The iNet™ solution will solve the issues we had related to maintenance and record-keeping of our gas monitoring equipment” said Sam Woollacott of South West Water. Should a malfunction occur, iNet™ will initiate the delivery of a ready-to-use replacement monitor to the appropriate South West Water site. The original instrument is then sent back in a prepaid shipping package. iNet™ is a total-cost-of-ownership program that eliminates the most cost-intensive and time-consuming tasks involved with managing a gas detection fleet. South West Water now have a gas detection program that places them at the forefront of their industry ensuring that the safety of their personnel is safeguarded and provides full visibility into the operation of their gas detection fleet.
