Industrial environment usually involves some types of hazardous substances including toxic and/or flammable gases. Accidental gas leakage can cause potential dangers to a plant, its employees and surrounding neighborhoods. Around 64% of accidents that happen in the oil fields are due to combustibles and/or toxic gases. The safety plan of most industries includes measures to reduce risk to humans and plants by incorporating early-warning devices, such as gas detectors. Most existing tools for monitoring gases are stationary and incapable of accurately measuring individual exposures that depend on personal lifestyles and environment. This paper provides a design and implementation of a wearable gas sensor network by building sensor nodes with wireless communication modules which communicate their data along the network. The system is designed to be flexible, low cost, low maintenance and with accurate performance to detect toxic gases in a timely fashion to warn employees before an existence of a disaster
