Today it is more than possible for all industrialists and commercial business owners to effectively manage their premises’ emissions, where applicable to the business. In many cases, whether they are utilizing the (recommended) work of qualified and registered risk management practitioners (particularly where it is mandated that they do so by government agencies) or carrying out the work themselves (so long as staff are properly equipped, trained and allowed to do so), a portable combustion analyzer is being used.
Also being used are manometers and gas detectors, along with all other in situ (and appropriate) probes. All these necessary instruments are approved for use because they have been thoroughly tested and maintained wherever and whenever necessary. Small to medium sized businesses, where such emissions testing is necessary and mandated, all have immediate access to such testing devices through localized and legislatively approved source suppliers.
Similarly, these suppliers, with qualified risk management technicians in their employ, can consult directly with all commercial businesses (where relevant) and inspect industrial sites before making recommendations on what stationery or portable testing systems would be applicable. But portable combustion and portable gas analyzers are already in wide use. These devices are convenient to use and training on how to properly manage them is always accessible for first time users.
While on the one hand it is recommended that manufacturing and processing plants with larger than average emissions utilize the services of qualified and registered risk management technicians, plant owners can initiate in-house testing with their own or rented devices. But at the same time, all staff delegated to use these testing devices should be properly trained on how to use them and have an acute awareness of their risk management objectives, usually influenced by experience.
