SafeWatch technology allows an Airgas On-Site Safety Services Technical Rescue Team member to remotely monitor both inside and outside of up to 20 confined spaces at a time


Airgas On-Site Safety Services is one of the leading safety solution providers in the United States, offering safety products, services and training to help you protect your workers. Our confined space video monitoring system - SafeWatch, is the most advanced system available on the market today.


What is Safewatch?

Safewatch is an industry leading confined space monitoring system that meets the requirements of OSHA 1910.146(i) for permit required entry duties. Safewatch uses proprietary software to integrate multiple technologies to continuously monitor workers inside and outside the confined space including: real time communication, video surveillance, gas detection monitoring, entry and exit badge monitoring and unauthorized entry attempts. Multiple display screens are used for real time monitoring of any hazards that pose risks to the workers or other emergency situations that have occurred inside the confined space. With the data being captured electronically, customers can review all activities including any changes in atmospheric hazards and who was in the space at the time.


  • Meets OSHA 1910.146(i) requirements for permit required confined space attendant duties
  • The only system with Class 1 Division 1 rated equipment inside the confined space
  • The only system compliant with UL 508a listing for electrical safety
  • Scalable and modular, the software based system can be deployed in just hours - with a minimal footprint
  • A single cable is run into the confined space, reducing trip hazards and egress obstructions
  • Wireless “mesh” network allows modules to communicate with each other wirelessly, providing better system redundancy
  • Multiple and central hole monitoring capability
  • Redundant critical communications via radio and intercom between command center and workers
  • Access control verification using cameras and RFID badging
  • Internal and external multi-gas monitoring using AreaRAE wireless multi-gas monitors
  • Visual and audible evacuation alarms
  • Emergency battery back up
  • Data documentation and storage of all video, sound and monitor readings

Benefits of SafeWatch

Increased Safety

Workers who enter confined spaces have more safeguards in place with Safewatch. This is the first hole watch system to allow our monitoring staff to see inside the confined space.

Reduced Cost and Risk

The SafeWatch system can be deployed in a matter of hours rather than days. This system increases the capacity of our technical rescue team members, allowing them to monitor several holes at once. Risks are reduced through redundancy and digital record keeping. We collect data on monitoring and carry this information forward for future learning and planning.

Regulatory Compliance

The SafeWatch confined space monitoring system meets OSHA 1910.164(i) for permit required confined space entries and UL 508a electrical standards. It is the only system that provides real time monitoring and communication through Class I Div I equipment including:

  • Video surveillance
  • Gas detection
  • Entry and exit badging
  • Unauthorized entry attempts
  • Man down emergency alerts
