||The lack of oxygen or the presence of toxic gases may have fatal consequences. While this risk is generally well understood for underground work, it is often overlooked in more common settings. To avoid all risks, the use of gas detectors is increasingly recommended. This article on work in confined atmospheres discusses the detection of pollutants, threshold limit values, the selection of gas detectors and personal protection.
