Gas Monitor Bump Testing vs Calibration

A free white paper by Critical Environment Technologies Canada Inc.

We are often asked to explain the difference between calibrations and bump testing. This is a controversial subject. OHS would have you do a full calibration before each use. In practice, our customers come up with their own intervals. If the gas monitor is used infrequently, say once a month, it should be calibrated every time to give you confidence that the unit is going to respond as it should. If your company uses their detection device a few times a week, then our customers have told us they do an occasional bump test and calibrate less often.
