Gas rescue training in the steel industry uses theatrical fog. But you need to train people to a high level before using it, since the visibility problem adds a whole new dimension. Several years ago one company stupidly decided that everyone who worked in a gas hazard area should be trained in gas rescue. They gave people very limited training in SCBA use - basically how to don it - then threw them into a simulated rescue with a mannequin in a dark, foggy space. One worker died of a heart attack.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Gas Leak Training Input
I'm trying to put together a gas leak training for our ERT members and I can't quite decide how to set it up. If the gas was visible, that would be nice but I can't think of a good candidate. Have any of you done anything like this? If so, any ideas or input into how to get this training onto it's feet would be much appreciated.
I already have liquid spill training planned out.
