Choosing Safety Shoes Manufacturers

safety shoes manufacturersI don’t know how you select safety shoes manufacturers or safety shoes brands for workers. However, I believe one thing that everyone has own preference and style. It is very possible that you and your staff will like different safety shoes manufacturers.

Such situation is very common and may happen in most companies. However, that will become problem if you cannot treat it properly. The procurement process will take long time to complete, since purchasing Department has to wait which safety shoes manufacturers will be selected till all workers agree the selected brands or manufacturers.

Chemical Safety Labels – Overview

Chemical safety labels are parts of hazard controls against hazardous chemicals. Correct chemical safety labeling is fundamental factor to workplace safety. Besides, it is also required by legal.

Chemical safety labels inform potential hazards posed by hazardous chemicals, as well as other important information such as first aid procedure and emergency procedure. Their applications on hazardous chemical containers are very practical on how to use the products safely.

Potential hazards contained in a specific hazardous chemical may in form of physical and health hazards. Physical hazards could be combustible liquid, explosive, compressed gases, flammable, oxidizer, organic peroxide, water reactive and unstable or reactive. Health hazards of hazardous chemical could be carcinogenic (cancer-causing), irritant, corrosive, sensitizer, acutely toxic, chronically toxic, reproductive toxin, hepatotoxins, nephatoxins, neurotoxins, substances that damage the skin, eyes, mucous membranes or lungs, and substances that work on the circulatory system.

Failure to provide correct chemical safety labels or chemical hazard labels can cause injuries, ill health, death, fire and explosion. As an example, when a worker is mixing two chemicals or more without clear labels, could create toxic gases or even explosion. (more…)

Introducing Infrared Temperature Measurement

Infrared temperature measurement is usually carried out as a part of predictive maintenance program in a chemical plant. It is done to detect and measure abnormal temperature or hotspot of electromechanical equipment before troubles happen.

thermographic-inspectionsThe thermal image resulted from infrared temperature measurement represents thermal property of the equipment. By knowing that condition, preventive maintenance will be more effective, efficient and downtime of the plant can be reduced significantly.

In safety standpoint, infrared temperature measurement helps providing important information about problems at electrical components. Electrical component or equipment failure due to overheating for example could cause fire accident that harms employees’ safety. (more…)

Carbon Tetrachloride MSDS

carbon tetrachloride msdsCarbon tetrachloride or tetrachloromethane, which is widely known as Freon 10 and halon 104, is a colorless liquid with ether like smell. Carbon tetrachloride, with chemical formula CCl4, is a toxic chemical and harmful to human’s health.

Carbon tetrachloride was widely used as solvent in laboratory, precursor for refrigerant and fire extinguisher agent. But due to its environmental problem and health effect, its used has been greatly reduced. (more…)

OSHA Fact Sheet on Combustible Dust Hazard Controls

combustible-dust-explosionCombustible dust hazard control is the key to prevent combustible dust deflagration and explosion. Combustible dust hazard control includes dust control, ignition (heat) source control, operation control and workplace or space control. Proper controls can prevent dust explosion.

Once the initial dust explosion occurs, the secondary explosion seems likely to take place. The secondary explosion can be far more destructive than the primary explosion due to the increased concentration of combustible dust in the surrounding air. (more…)
