    the risks The third relevant factor which is not unrelated to the second is the production and usage of Standard Operating Procedures SOP s also commonly referred to as Method Statements Most activities or operations that occur within a workplace should have a documented Standard Operating Procedure detailing exactly how the operation is to be carried out Members of staff undertaking the operation in question must have been properly trained in this and that fact formally recorded in their training record and have access to any relevant risk assessment document s Users of oxy fuel equipment who do not have access to any form of SOP have often been found to be using incorrect light up and shut down techniques for years as a consequence Gas Safe also frequently hears that operators are time served and learned about welding at college or during an apprenticeship and know how to do the job properly In response the safety specialist company asks to see their nozzle data charts correct spark lighters and leak test solutions which they are unable to produce This means that operators are frequently using the wrong nozzle size for the job not setting the correct pressures and then not checking for leaks prior to lighting up the equipment using the wrong type of spark lighter Fourthly the question of Equipment Inspection and Replacement is relevant Regulators and other items of gas control equipment should receive a visual inspection each time prior to use and be inspected at regular intervals with written reports on their inspection being produced and kept It is a common misconception that regulators can be used indefinitely as long as they appear to be in good condition In fact gas regulators and some other associated equipment have a life span that is typically five years Once they reach this age they must be replaced or professionally refurbished irrespective of how much use they have had It is not acceptable for organisations to state that they have not replaced equipment that has passed its expiry date based on the fact they felt it was costly to do so Additionally gas control equipment tends to be checked but is not tagged to indicate the date of inspection and the next due inspection date In these instances it is not possible to demonstrate whether or not the equipment is safe to use The fifth factor concerns Piped Systems carrying gases or cryogenic liquids under pressure The majority of piped systems encountered are subject to the requirements of the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 PSSR A good number of these including those cryogenic pressure storage vessels that fall under the scope of PSSR do not have the relevant Written Scheme of Examination in place This is a legal requirement however companies cannot operate the equipment without one Additionally few pipelines are inspected examined and pressure tested on a regular basis which is also a legal requirement This situation results in pressure systems being used that do not comply with

  • News & Press Releases
    control equipment being used on acetylene equipment is designed for acetylene use Our oxy acetylene training workshop explains how flashbacks can occur when operators are using oxy fuel gas equipment and now in line with the new regulations instructs operators to fit flashback arrestors to acetylene systems Over the past couple of years acetylene has received some negative press This has mainly been driven by the protocols used by the Fire and Rescue Service to deal with incidents involving acetylene cylinders whereby cylinders were cooled for 24 hours before being moved Recent research undertaken by the British Compressed Gases Association and other parties has resulted in a new method of dealing with acetylene cylinder fires now the cylinders are cooled for one hour and then monitored for a further hour before being moved It s essential that operators and management are aware of this new procedure At Gas Safe we constantly update our acetylene safety training materials and have recently modified all of our oxy acetylene training workshops to reflect this new protocol Acetylene training is required for personnel who use the gas in any environment e g welding cutting fabrication laboratories etc If you believe you have a need for oxy acetylene training please contact us on 01270 758890 or admin gassafeconsultants co uk Welder training 12th February 2015 Many organisations undertake welding processes but do not require their welders to be trained up to a certain coding level They require multi skilled operators who can lay down a weld to an acceptable level and provide the organisation with a flexible workforce that is best suited to the demanding needs of today s economic conditions Recognising this trend we at Gas Safe have developed a suite of welder training packages that precisely meet the market s needs Whether it s brazing soldering MMA Mig or Tig welding training that is being undertaken we have the package This not only provides operators with an understanding of the processes being used but also allows them the opportunity to gain invaluable practical experience with one of our welding specialists When we undertake welding training we encourage clients to train their operators in small groups allowing delegates the chance to interact effectively with the trainer have their questions answered and gain experience with continued positive feedback At the end of our welder training sessions delegates are able to return to their workplace and undertake welding operations with an enhanced knowledge of the process the ability to correctly set up the equipment and confidence in their ability With our experience in the gases industry and the knowledge of our trainers we are able to put together welding training workshops that precisely meet organisations requirements If you have a need to train your staff in welding processes or would like to know more about our suite of workshops then please contact us Improved Welding Workshops 19th November 2014 Gas Safe offers an extensive range of practical welding and cutting workshops We are conscious of the
