To perform this assessment, two or more sparkproof portable uniaxial and 3 axial borehole geophones model DLM-PPV, recording the velocity up to amplitude of 1.0 m/s, are connected to the seismic network.
Other considerations for this work include isolating and locking out electrical devices and mechanical equipment, special clothing and equipment (boots, chemical suits, face masks, sparkproof lights, etc.), and respiratory protection (air purifiers, supplied air, self-contained breathing apparatus, etc.).
Spills should be cleaned up right away using sparkproof equipment.
