  • Oxy-Fuel Gas Safety - Hot Work
    Hot Work Oxy 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

  • Train to gain - The scope and importance of training
    if released will displace air or dilute the available oxygen therefore threatening asphyxiation while others are classified as toxic or corrosive Working with gases is not inherently more dangerous than other activities in the manufacturing industry provided that workers understand the hazards of the gases they use know the associated risks of the activity they are undertaking and respect the requirements of defined job related procedures This underlines the importance of ensuring that workers receive appropriate training and achieve the required level of understanding in order to minimise their exposure and that of the general public to unnecessary risk Common weaknesses in training systems In many countries we find that mainstream training programmes tend to omit from their curricula any detailed or specific industrial gas training As a result 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
