    Fuel Gas Safety Hot Work 18th October 2011 12 00 am The US Chemical Safety Board is an independent federal agency charged with investigating industrial chemical accidents within the United Sates The CSB conducts root cause investigations of chemical accidents at fixed industrial facilities Root causes are usually deficiencies in safety management systems but can be any factor that would have prevented the accident if that factor had not occurred Other accident causes often involve equipment failures human errors unforeseen chemical reactions or other hazards The CSB produce instructional videos that are available on line Their short video illustrates the key lessons to prevent flammable vapour explosions when using oxy fuel gas systems for welding and cutting In our experience many organisations believe that their operators are using oxy fuel gas systems correctly either because they are time served or simply because they have been using the equipment for years and never had an accident The video demonstrates the consequences of poor operational procedures and failure to ensure that staff are trained correctly News Archive September 2015 2 April 2015 2 March 2015 1 February 2015 1 November 2014 1 October 2014 1 March 2014 3 September 2013 1 April

    or welding applications Gas Safe are conscious of the specific gas safety training needs within the quarrying and mining industries and have produced a full day training workshop that meets those requirements The practical based workshop focuses on the safe use of oxy fuel gas systems The initial classroom session highlights the potential hazards posed by the gases used It also illustrates the consequences of bad working practices and the potential hazards posed by the use of damaged old or repaired gas control equipment The afternoon session looks at the function and operation of oxy fuel gas equipment and includes team based exercises that allow delegates the opportunity to undertake pre use visual checks on regulators and flashback arrestors The practical session follows the standard operating procedure that is detailed in the course workbook The session allows delegates the opportunity to correctly set up an oxy fuel gas workstation then pressurise and leak test it The practical session may be undertaken either using small cylinders Portapaks that are typically transported around the quarry or large workstations used within a workshop The session may be extended to include practical tuition on oxy fuel gas operations such as cutting welding and brazing

    there is a lack of awareness or understanding of gases their chemical and physical properties and the risks associated with gas containers pipelines regulators and dedicated devices used by many industries in their day to day production processes In those countries that lack strong health and safety legislation and enforcement the level of knowledge among some workers handling industrial gases may be described as dangerously inadequate A widely held but dangerous assumption is that workers will over a period of time or during an apprenticeship gain sufficient knowledge and skills from on the job training and that long experience naturally implies an adequate understanding of gas hazards and good safety practice It s not uncommon to findthat established work practices are incorrect potentially unsafe and actually put poorly trained workers at increased risk Human nature unfortunately finds a way to undermine many well intentioned training initiatives because some trainees adopt the attitude that training is imposed on them by management in order to waste their time and make their tasks more difficult Therefore they fail to recognise the relevance of the knowledge presented to their own situation and later when management s attention wanes continue to use the same old unsafe methods Short cuts are often perceived to save time and effort allowing workers to feel like they are doing a good job ヨ coping with a few risks may even provide a perverse sense of achievement Effective training depends on planning Training is often viewed as being expensive but ineffective training is a total waste of resources It is absolutely vital therefore that the training process should be planned and executed effectively in order to justify the investment and ensure that worthwhile outcomes can be both seen and measured Effective training starts with the identification of specific measurable objectives and should be designed to meet the needs of the work task the trainee and the organisation in order to help them conduct their business in an altogether safer more effective manner Training objectives should aim to fulfil specific needs and are best identified from task specific risk assessments reference to existing gas systems operating procedures and also the observations of line supervisors and management Needs are identified by comparing workers current levels of skill and knowledge withthe levels required in order to perform their tasks safely efficiently and effectively This process is called a training needs gap analysis and not only identifies the individuals that require training but also indicates the topics that need to be included in the training programme whether their attitudes are compatible and any specific issues for the individual such as height or physical disability One of the most commonly identified skill deficiencies is the ability to identify potential hazards Gas safety training is a means of communicating new knowledge and skills and is an essential component of the effort applied by the industry to continually raise awareness of potential hazards Training provides delegates with an opportunity to explore their existing knowledge base and level
