Safety is all about education. Harris Products (Mason, OH) says the 12-page manual was developed as a free resource that companies can distribute to their staff. It provides a basic understanding of the elements involved in the different oxy-fuel processes and offers guidelines for the safe and proper operation of the equipment. The safety manual is available in English, French, and Spanish.
Topics include common situations oxy-fuel users encounter on a daily basis. These include the combustion process, types of gases and cylinders, key hazards, attaching a high-pressure oxygen regulator, safety devices such as check valves and flashback arrestors, personal protective equipment, and more.
While it’s always critical to follow the safety instructions provided by equipment manufacturers, the oxy-fuel safety manual provides helpful tips to avoid personal injury and illness.
Harris Products Group is a Lincoln Electric company and designs, develops, and manufactures cutting, welding, brazing, and soldering equipment, consumables, and gas distribution systems.
