Warren Johnson, senior project manager for consulting, engineering and integration firm aeSolutions, was featured in CONTROL magazine discussing his presentation covering the essential aspects of gas detection system design at the 2019 Siemens Automation Summit.

[In the United States, it’s the role of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to set limits on employee exposure to toxic and hazardous substances, but it’s up to industry to ensure that those standards are met, said Warren Johnson, senior project manager for consulting, engineering and integration firm aeSolutions, in a presentation covering the essential aspects of gas detection system design at the 2019 Siemens Automation Summit.
