Carbon Monoxide SafeAir Badge, pk/50


This badge has been discontinued.

The SafeAir carbon monoxide badge is a monitoring system designed to indicate the presence of carbon monoxide at concentrations below the permissible exposure limit. The SafeAir carbon monoxide badge detects the presence of carbon monoxide by forming a color change in the shape of an exclamation mark inside the triangle. This indication is produced by a color-forming reaction which occurs when carbon monoxide reacts with a flat indicator layer.

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas. It is the only commonly used industrial gas which is both highly toxic and odorless. Symptoms of exposure to carbon monoxide include headaches, palpitations, dizziness, weakness and nausea. Low levels of carbon monoxide in airs, which are not immediately hazardous to life, may impair reaction time or sensory perception. Chronic exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide may adversely affect the cardiovascular system. Loss of consciousness and death may result from continued or more intense exposure. OSHA PEL (permissible exposure limit) for carbon monoxide is 50 ppm (TWA). NIOSH REL (recommended exposure limit) for carbon monoxide is 35 ppm (TWA). Carbon monoxide is a widely spread air pollutant. It is a byproduct in the combustion of gasoline, diesel, kerosene and coal fuel; therefore, carbon monoxide may exist in different industries, residential areas and highways.
