Many industries focus more on waste treatment thanks to the global sensitivity towards environmental issues of our time. Authorities implement more laws and regulations to ensure industrial organizations treat hazardous waste with minimum impact on nature. Some industries produce more harmful waste than others. Without a doubt, utilizing the full potential of the modern-day industry […]
Aerospace Manufacturing Certifications
Introduction: Over the past century, scientific and technological advancements in the aerospace industry have boomed. Nasa, Boeing, and Lockheed are examples of this industry’s giants. As such, the requirements for the manufacturing and safety of the aerospace industry have rigorously increased, primarily due to the “zero tolerance for mistakes” rule. In this article, we will […]
Types of Superalloys
Introduction Modern standards of production can be highly demanding. Engineers and designers are constantly pushed to meet industry requirements in performance, longevity, sustainability, and cost optimization. Industrial production is in a constant state of development. New design principles, production methods, and materials are crucial for innovation. Some industries can be particularly demanding, such as the […]
Safety Goggles vs Safety Glasses
According to the Disease Control and Prevention Center (CDC), almost 2,000 US workers suffer an eye injury at the job every day. These numbers represent the injuries which need medical attention. More than 100 of these injuries result in one or more days of lost workdays, and around one-third of these injuries are critical and require treatment in […]
Main Hazards for Welders in the Oil Industry
Welding is dangerous in many different ways, due to the fact that it may involve work on rigs or operating in the field. Welding hazards can appear at any time and anywhere.
Welders working in the oil and gas sector require personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect themselves from harm. Welders on long-distance pipelines and rigs can work 10-12 hour days, which means their PPE must be both safe and comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.
Pressure Welding Enclosures (PWE)
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.
Tools for Offshore Grinding
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.
Can I use a cold work permit rather than a hot work permit?
The ideal Safe System of Work (SSoW) at any location reduces the risk of performing that work to a level referred to as “As Low As Reasonably Possible” or ALARP in risk assessment terminology. The most common method of achieving this lowest risk situation is the Permit to Work (PTW) system which is used globally […]
TFT-Pneumatic featured in the Dust Safety Science Podcast
Earlier this month we were interviewed by Dr. Chris Cloney from DustSafetyScience.com to discuss how the TFT Safety Tools are an excellent choice to use in explosive zones, especially those that handle combustible dust materials. In this podcast, we discussed: What is a non-sparking tool? What applications are non-sparking tools used in? How do these […]
Cut through surfaces easily using the Compact Cutting Guide A-0420
The Compact Cutting Guide A-0420 track system uses a combination of a magnet with a travel track to guide the tool back and forth a flat surface. It is designed to cut on a flat surface to remove double plating or simply cut open a manhole, etc. Alternatively, it can be used to cut longitudinally on a […]
