I agree. While I work in a lab that supports chemical manufacturing, I am embarrassed to admit that everything here is set up as it has been for essentially the last 30 years. It was all set up originally by a somewhat maverick, free-thinking M.S. (Chemistry) and has served safely all these years. But he died a couple of years ago, making me the senior (by years of service) person and now I have grave doubts and worries. While our gases are stored and used in a more robust safety setup, I am now really concerned about the lack of monitoring for leaks of the gases used (H2, N2, He, nitric oxides, methane, ammonia, O2, etc). We have NOTHING in our storage area or lab to monitor for leaks!
