    1. Isolate From Main Supply

    2. Remove Fuses

    3. Lock Out

    4. Test For Incoming Power

    Only when absolutely necessary should any testing be

    performed with the power on. Use extreme care !

    Never work on a powered or running unit alone!

    Compressed Air Safety

    2 Electrical SafetyLock Out.

    Isolate the compressors power

    supply at the main board.

    Cover and lock the isolation box

    to prevent someone inadvertently

    switching supply back on whilst

    work is in progress or the unit is

    unsafe to use.

    It is advisable to use an Isolation Notice so people areaware that work is being carried out.

    Compressed Air Safety

    2 Electrical Safety

    Test for Incoming Power.

    Double check that the main supply

    terminals to the machine are not livebefore proceeding with any work.

    You may be 100% sure that supply has

    been isolated, but mistakes can occur

    from time to time. Get into the habit ofdouble checking that the machine is

    safe to work on as high voltages can

    kill. Its not worth the risk !!!

    4 Safe Working Practices.

    1. Use Correct Tools

    2. Calibrated Equipment

    3. Lifting Equipment

  • 7/29/2019 Safety Module [CompAir] (1)

    27/66

    Compressed Air Safety

    Always use correct tools for the job

    Using incorrect tools can damagecomponents and make further

    maintenance difficult and costly.

    e.g.

    Always use correctly sized spanners,

    never use grips or adjustable spanners.

    4 Safe Working Practices.

  • 7/29/2019 Safety Module [CompAir] (1)

    28/66

    Compressed Air Safety

    Always use equipment that has beencorrectly tested and calibrated.

    Using un-calibrated equipment may

    give false readings which could give

    rise to inaccurate fault diagnoses.

    4 Safe Working Practices.

  • 7/29/2019 Safety Module [CompAir] (1)

    29/66

    Compressed Air Safety

    Where required always use suitablelifting equipment

    Make sure that:-Items being lifted are well secured

    The lifting equipment and tackle is in

    good order and capable of lifting the

    item.

    Nobody, including yourself, stands too

    close or beneath items that are lifted.
