BullEx’s GasTrainer has been named “2009 New Product of the Year” by Occupational Health & Safety from the floor of the National Safety Council and Expo in Orlando, Fla.
The Occupational Health & Safety New Product of the Year Award honors the outstanding product development achievements of health and safety manufacturers whose products are considered particularly noteworthy in their ability to improve workplace safety.
The BullEx GasTrainer is a gas detector simulator for hands-on HazMat response or chemical emergency training. It uses simulated electronic gas sources and a handheld training gas meter that allows for comprehensive confined space training, gas monitoring and response training for both fire service professionals and safety personnel. Simulated gas sources can be set up in work areas, chemical storage facilities and near HVAC equipment where HazMat dangers can actually exist.
“We are honored to receive this award and would like to thank Occupational Health and Safety for their recognition of the GasTrainer as a top new product”, said Ryan O’Donnell, BullEx Chief Executive Officer. “Gas detectors are important tools used by first responders and safety professionals to monitor and respond to hazardous materials incidents. With GasTrainer, realistic hands-on gas detector training is now possible. From simulating a natural gas leak in a basement to creating a full scale multi-agency hazmat scenario, BullEx HazMat training tools give trainees the hands-on experience they need to be prepared for the real thing.”
Currently hundreds of US sites all around the globe, in places from Alaska to Afghanistan, are using BullEx safety training tools.
