A gas detector hired from Kennards Lift & Shift protected workers involved in the installation of steel platforms in an electrical services shaft at Star City Casino in Sydney. 

The gas detector was hired by Urgent Works, a building maintenance company operated by brothers Alex and Ron Griffiths, and sub-contracting to electrical and communications contractor, Stowe Australia.   

Kennards’ gas detectors are designed to monitor four gases simultaneously and continuously. The hired gas detector ensured safe CO2 levels at the work site.  

According to Kennards Lift & Shift, hiring the gas detector is a quick and cost-effective solution for confined space safety needs. Hiring the required equipment is recommended when it is not required very often or extra items are needed. 

Kennards also offers tripod and recovery system and davit arm units as well as gas detectors and air breathing apparatus packs on hire. Equipment such as rope positioning devices, safety harnesses, safety harness spreaders, fall arrestors-inertia reels and safety lanyards can also be hired.   

Kennards Lift & Shift operates equipment hire centres in Brisbane, Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
