Introduction Working with hazardous materials can be harmful; but in some workplaces, contact with such materials is inevitable. If you wish to review our selection of tools suitable for workplaces with dangerous materials. Unwanted contact can occur even with protected skin and eye gear. If not correctly attended to, such exposure can cause permanent damage. […]
Introduction Welding is a construction process that fuses two or more parts through heat, pressure, or both. It is an elementary fabrication process used in various industries such as construction, mechanical installations, machinery production, and the oil/gas industry. Metals and thermoplastics are the most common materials merged by welding, but welding can fuse a broad […]
Flammable substances are essential components for various industries; however, incorrect use and storage of such materials may lead to disasters due to their hazardous nature. Moreover, the waste and byproducts of most flammables can be just as dangerous. Correct disposal and waste management planning of flammables is crucial to prevent fires and explosions. Definition Flashpoint […]
What is Carbon Monoxide? Carbon monoxide (CO) is a toxic, colorless, odorless, tasteless gas that can kill you. That is why it is sometimes called “the silent killer”. CO has no identifiable odor but is often mixed with other odorous gases. Therefore, carbon monoxide can be breathed or inhaled with a gas that has a […]
In this post you’ll learn Why is head protection important Difference between Bump Caps and Hard Hats When should a Hard Hat or a Bump Cap be used Thousands of workers encounter head injuries at work yearly, and these injuries can lead to lost working hours and, in severe cases, death. According to most recent […]
In this post you’ll learn As summer months approach, workers exposed to hot environments can be at risk of heat stress. Extreme heat can lead to occupational diseases and injuries. Heat stress can cause heat stroke, heat exhaustion, muscle spasms, or heat rash. Heat can also cause sweat in the palms, cloudiness of goggles, and […]
The industrial manufacturing sector has witnessed a massive rise in competitiveness owing to ever-advancing technological leaps. Apart from the developments, challenges involved in manufacturing high-quality components at minimum expenses have also surfaced. To minimize manufacturing obstructions, the CNC grinding system has entered the picture and revolutionized the grinding industry as we know it. A Complete […]
According to the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA), Hand-Arm Vibration (HAV) is a vibration exposure that mainly affects people who regularly use vibrating pneumatic, electric, hydraulic, and gasoline-powered hand tools. Research and studies going back to 1918 link HAV exposure to a condition of the fingers and hands called Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). […]
There are many different types of labeling hazardous goods. Each has a distinct role to play, and it’s critical to understand the distinctions between them. NFPA 704 is a standard for hazard identification that was developed to make emergency response decisions easier. It specifies a straightforward, readily recognized, simply understood method for identifying the particular […]
A pressurized welding enclosure (PWE) is a fully enclosed area that is safe for welding work near classified environments or otherwise dangerous. Some systems use a computer to control atmospheric monitoring and welding equipment.
Non-sparking tools are essential in maintenance, operation, and modification jobs. Certain electric, hydraulic or pneumatic tools are indispensable across the board, and especially when performing a job in an Offshore Platform.
Pipeline integrity management is about being compliant with regulations and having a program that ensures safety and lowers operational costs. Operators have the best programs when they have a good system for managing pipeline integrity. They manage their processes, documentation, metrics, and organization to be more efficient with pipeline integrity.
Docking is a high-risk industry. The work environment is challenging, and the job often requires workers to do their jobs with heavy equipment despite extreme weather conditions. Workers in seaports and docks must be prepared to work through the day and night, communicate effectively with international colleagues, and understand safety procedures which can vary depending […]
Hastelloy delivers strength at high temperatures and exceptional corrosion resistance, ideal for use in chemical process plants and petrochemical industry.
The use of high-temperature gases and electrical arcs in welding means that as no mechanical energy has imparted the distance the sparks travel is reduced. However, in both cases, the hot material in spark form is close to the melting point of the material being worked on.
Work permit generation in process plants handling a highly flammable powder or combustible dust will necessarily focus on risk reduction or prevention.
We will discuss the process of inspecting pipelines in explosive environments. coatings, and the job responsibility of NACE inspectors, and the preparation of a good surface profile for pipeline networks and oil field tanks.
Moisture in compressed air may cause problems for pneumatic tools and increase down time and maintenance as a result. Learn how to avoid it.
When are pneumatic tool repairs needed? We discuss the components of an air tool and how each part can need repair or replacement.
Here are some of the most common dangerous situations that can lead to accidents when using angle grinders.
