The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that occupational exposure to nitrous oxide may cause lightheadedness, eye and upper airway irritation, cough, shortness of breath, and decreases in mental performance and manual dexterity. Chronic occupational exposure to high levels of the gas may cause an increased risk of neurologic, renal, and liver disease, as well as increased risk of miscarriage and fertility issues.
Smart Training’s Nitrous Oxide Monitoring Badge can be worn near the breathing zone to measure personal exposure, or placed in a room to measure area concentration. This product contains a single monitoring badge for one employee or one room. If you need multiple monitoring badges, please increase the quantity.
It is recommended that you test your nitrous levels at least twice per year.
