BDS windsocks are an essential safety tool in the chemical industry. Our windsocks are used at both chemical plants and chemical storage sites to provide a visual indication of the wind direction in the event of a chemical or bio-hazard emergency. Our windsocks are an integral part of a chemical company’s safety plan and the control of on-site and off-site emergencies. We are extremely proud of the fact that our windsocks are crucial in assisting with the protection of personnel and the environment.
Accidents can happen at night as well as during the day. For plant personnel fleeing a hazardous situation, knowing the wind direction and speed is crucial and could be the difference between life and death. If this type of accident does happen, your BDS lighted windsock system will let your employees know which way not to run, enabling employees to move to a save location.
For site safety, our windsocks are an invaluable quick reference tool for determining wind direction and estimating wind strength. It can take a considerable time to get accurate meteorological information in emergency situations. However, BDS windsocks are an instant guide and can help determine how a critical incident may affect the surrounding areas.
Install a BDS Windsock System at your chemical plant and move away from the direction of the wind in the event of a hazardous chemical leak. Many workers are being asked to carry out their duties at work sites where hazardous or odorous substances could potentially escape. If your workplace carries this potential risk, a BDS windsock is essential to ascertain the wind direction. When escaping from a chemical leak or the fumes from a chemical spill, employees must move away from the direction of the wind. The use of a BDS windsock to determine the wind direction is a critical safety tool to help protect workers. This will help you to determine your safe zone.
The BDS windsocks are placed at a high-points, in clear air, so they are clearly visible to all workers. Our windsocks direct workers to a muster point, upwind of chemical spill emergency incidents. At least one windsock is required to form part of your emergency planning for the plant’s potential hazards. Our windsocks are an essential tool for compliance with the Control of Major Accidents Hazards (COMAH) regulations for chemical plants.
The BDS windsocks are an essential indicator of wind direction should potential hazardous substances escape. Our windsocks are used in these locations to identify wind direction in the event of potential hazardous substance or gases escaping. If this does happen, the windsock signals the wind direction, enabling employees to move to a save location. Being able to accurately determine the direction of the wind by way of a windsock is you first line of defense.
The largest chemical companies in the world have entrusted us with their lighted and non-lighted windsock safety needs.
