Total Safety held its 17th Annual Tee It Up for Charity Golf Tournament in May.

During a recent major maintenance turnaround at a 150,000 bbl/d West Coast refinery, Total Safety’s Centralized Confined Space Monitoring™ System succeeded in detecting carbon monoxide when traditional methods failed, and in the process, also helped save the owner approximately 12% on overall confined space project cost.
To combat hazards within confined spaces, Total Safety utilizes a patented-pending Centralized Confined Space Monitoring System that acts as a supplement to existing confined space entry procedures. The system, already successfully deployed on over one hundred projects in Europe, is ready for the North American market.
