purpose of calibrating instruments is to ensure readings from an instrument are
consistent with other measurements to determine the accuracy of the instrument
reading and also to establish the reliability of the instrument i.e. that can
be trusted and therefore all the instruments should be calibrated in order to
ensure that all the readings and all the systems of the machines to be used
allow faster processes and of course with lesser errors.
is important to calibrate instruments prior to their use in order to measure
accuracy and comparison of a measuring instrument that has a standard to
determine the possible errors in a specific scale and also reduces the risk of serious accidents, severe
illnesses, poisonous gases, flammable gas explosions and even death since if
the instruments are not well-calibrated before-head then there are risks that
may include: divers face specific physical and health risks when scuba diving
since there can be the loss of breathing gas supply due to faulty instruments.
hazards during calibration which include flammable materials, such as gases,
mists, vapors or combustible dust which may lead to potentially explosive
environments such as gas pipelines, rigs, and processing plants and oil
