5.7.1     Always ensure that upon entering • building you report to • respoosibk person.


5.7.2     Always ascertain any rekva at Health and Safety procedures applicable to the premises.


5.73      When working, be safety minded and use common sense Le. Never search for gas leaks with a
          naked flame, nee soapy water or detection fluid.


          If a smell of ps is present in the room you are to work, isolate the supply and ventilate room
          before commencing work.


          When testing for faults on burners etc. turn off main gas valve or isolate the main solesold valve
          until the pilot flame is proved stable.
          N.B. Test that the main valve is closed wheel electricity is switched off, as it h possiMe to stick in
                  the open position.


          Beware when handling probes aid U.V. Cells on gas boners, as some hold a 240V supply even
          when the burner Is in the satisfied position.



         Beware when working on motors with capacitors lifted, these hold • 240V charge eve. when the
         mails electric is switched OFF.


5.7.8 Always follow manufacturers Instructions before working on mains electric controls Le. always
         isolate supply before removing coven from controls, burners, taus, switches, isolators etc.



5.7.9 Before switching on the burner ensure that there are no re strietioNs to the fames/gas escaping by
         checking the Bees and main chimney for obstructions and correct dmaght.


5.7.10 Always work with the burner firing into the combustion chamber, unless the main isolator is
         switched off.



5.7.11 Do not handle combustion brickwork or any appliance inside the boiler which is in direct line of
        flame, i.e. gas manifold assemblies, without wearing protective gloves, as these may be hot, whilst
        looking normal.



5.7.12 Always Mad to one side of the boiler whenever opening the ex plosion door as back beat or gas
         fumes could be present


5.7.13 Always wipe up any lubricating oil spillage etc. and never leave containers in boiler house after
         working on harmer. (This is a lire hazard)

5.8.1 Always ensure that the system is 'salted, wherever p ossible by salving off, however never trust
        that valves are holding test as follows:
          (i)    Cheek that no pressure is in tie system by loosening of plugs or drain cocks, air vents e t c .
          (ii)   If the pressure does not decrease th en drain the system.


5.8.2 When working on steam systems, remember that the pipe an which you are working could still
        be order pressure and hold steam, even when isolated. Give adequate time for the steam to
        condense.


         Win working on the electrical supply to appliances, a lw a ys isolate before removing protective
         covers. Beware when working on pumps and motors with capachors fitted as these will hold a
         charge even when dismantled.



5.8.4 When working on pumps, extract fans, intake fans in ducts, or other electrically operated
        appliances not of sight of the isolating switch, always disconnect the electricity supply by
          removing the fuses and hanging • warning sign on the switch. Always wedge the fan blades with
        • wood block or wedge before commencing work.

5.8.5 At all times when working on any services make sure that notices are displayed in prominent
          positions to indicate that work is le progress.

5.9 Code of Practice ftw Handling of Tubes and Fittings


         Asa result of tatting, it is possible that burn and marl may be present on the end cuts of tubes.
         When handling ensure that protective gloves are worn.


5.93 Protective clothing and gloves should be worn wheal handling products coated with corrosion
        preventative oils or varnishes and normal standards of hygiene should be observed e.g. regular
        washing and changing of overalls.


         Bagged ancillary fittings are generally supplied in plastic or hessian bags and these may break
         open if not properly handled. Bags of andantes and fittings should be handled with care and the
         package examined before lifting to ensure that there art no splits in the container. On no account
         should hooks be used to handle the packages.



         Bundling lies, ropes or steel bands surrounding bundles of tube are intended only to prevent
         separation during transit and storage. Under no drcumstances should bundling ties, ropes etc. be
         used as lifting points or be relied on to secure bundles during lifting or other movement.


         Hot rolled or treated tube may exhibit a certain amend of surface scale. This may give rise to
         flying particles when machining, so the appropriate eye protection shoold be worn.



         When subjected to dented temperatures as daring welding, hearing, flame netting etc. steel
         tubes coated with corrosion inhibitor such as preventative oils or varnishes may give rise to
         noxious limes. in particular, zinc called (galvanised) tubes give off tine oxide fumes when
         subjected to elevated temperatares. As precautionary and protective onsores care should be
         taken to minimise exposure to such fume, and ensure adequate ventilation is provided.


         In the tam of handling Large diameter steel or east iron pipe it is important to assess the risk
         involved and apply the following bask principles:

                   If the pipe has to be carried it is important to make sure that you have a dear
                   unobstructed path and beware of slippery surfaces.
                   Never try to lift more than you feel comfortable with and ensure that you can see over
                   the load when carrying it.
                   Ensure you ha e s fin, grip with the palms of the hands and the roots of the fingers,
                   and never change grip while carrying — rest the load first on some lino support, then
                   change.
                   When carrying homy Pipe two or more men must be used The same basic principles
                   apply when two or more men are lifting the same object, however the lifting gam) mast
                   work as a team and be given instructions by one man only.
                   When lifting heavy pipe into position, above head height, it is important to prepare •
                   suitable working platform to operate from to ensure that no over-reaching Gann. You
                   must ensure that each man in the team knows precisely what to do and how to do it.
                   Where dealing with henvY lengths of pipe, a block and tackle set up should be used to
                   winch the pipe into the approximate position, so that manual handlingillftiog is kept to
                   minimum.
