Asbestos Cement Pipe Safety Training Video

asbestos containing fabrics secreted within existing produces have been in use for thousands of years in fact it was mined from boulder organisation in ancient times as a wick for lamps tablecloths textiles and other useful entries in modern times asbestos has been used for countless concoctions such as fireproofing pipe insulation theatre draperies siding roofing gaskets and parcelling ocean and sewer piping and more in irrigate and wastewater works asbestos cement pipe may contain as much as 20% asbestos or more which is used as reinforcement for the tube much in the same way steel is used to reinforce concrete in aqueducts and constructs however we must understand that the plaster is set out in the hose can degrade over hour therefore increasing the risk of fiber handout the different types of asbestos exercised are both the serpentine Chrissa tile and kindly Amma site and cross it alight some people think that asbestos was banned by the EPA so there is no more asbestos however the ban was overturned by the courts so it is safe to say asbestos is still in existence today in some word or another in spite of the fact that countless creators claim times when asbestos was no longer contained in their makes their prior product line still contains asbestos in fact many companies still have tons of material or grapevines regulations require that employees must be informed of the presence of asbestos containing makes in addition only fully trained individuals should be allowed to perform work with asbestos containing produces or succeed where fibers may be released in the air a major deception that exists is that no asbestos is released from commodities such as gaskets jam-pack or cementitious cloths the employer must also ensure that proper containment storage and labeling of asbestos containing produces are complied with until are caught up by an asbestos attested waste management firm it’s also important to consider the certification training and qualifications of any contractors before entreat or starting work with AC pipe or referred produces so be sure to obtain copies of any countenances permissions and training certifications for your due diligence file if hires will be using respiratory protection then the employer must develop and implement a full respiratory shield program including training physicals and fit testing at a minimum the awaited tier of respiratory defence will vary depending on an industrial hygiene prediction of aerosolized levels of an asbestos secrete most asbestos produces collected from fibrous different forms of the mineral asbestos fibers have not yet been detectable odor or penchant but can have peculiar colours depending upon the variety such as white brown and blue the three most common types of asbestos fibers are Chrissa tile or white asbestos which has white fibers accounting for 90 to 95 percent of u.s.Asbestos and use amis ight which ogles brown or gray with straight fibers and Priscilla light which has blue straight fibers be sure to consult the MSDS that comes with your hose or other asbestos containing products to ensure that you have a good understanding of the amount of asbestos and other important safety information provided by the MSDS under a microscope asbestos fibers inspect something like porcupine quills which grant fibers to move freely through human tissue terminating up in any number of organs the most dangerous fibers are the ones which are more easily inhaled deep into the lungs one of the most important considerations concerning asbestos associated ailment is what is known as the latency point which is the time between exposure and the onset of the disease experts agree that there is usually a latent period of 10 to 25 years in some forms of asbestos cancer from initial revelation and onslaught of cancer however some craftsmen disclosed for 40 years or more may not become ill whereas others exposed for shorter periods of time will develop disease the most common disease asbestosis is progressive and once it begins is incurable however is not cancerous it essentially blocks the respiratory system by scarring lung material bronchogenic carcinoma is primarily related to workers with asbestos exposure and too inhale mesothelioma and other lung cancers are lethal and have a potential latency period from 20 to 40 years or more here is the kicker if you inhale and working in collaboration with asbestos your cancer jeopardy jumps by as much as 93 percentage so if you inhale quit now it’s never too late cal/ osha led the style with the development of standards exclusively for working with AC pipe and can be found in the construction industry standard for asbestos region one five to nine and in the general industry safety seeks part five to 0-8 California occupational safety and health regulations three for 1.17 and Labor Code part 6501 place eight subsection C the Federal OSHA standards can be located in the OSHA’s construction industry standard for occupational showing to asbestos subpart z 29 CFR one nine to six scatter 1 1 0 1 asbestos safety and health professionals use specialized instrumentation and analysis in order to measure the amount of asbestos fibers in the employees breathing zone a special filter is attached to an air pump and placed on the employee the filter is analyzed under a microscope to influence government employees revelation height the current admissible show grade is 0.1 fibers per CC of breath over an eight-hour shift or a short-term exposure of no more than 1 fiber per CC of breath over a 30 minute point we are talking about minut amounts of asbestos now compare that for example the removal of a essay asbestos flange gasket exploiting a supremacy cable brushing and the fiber secrete can be as high-pitched as 95 fibers per CC of air into the breathing zone of the worker an important aspect of the standard is the requirement for specific training consisting of a four hour initial track and to our annual refresher exercise this video is designed to augment a CE pipe training and provide safety information in a format helpful to trainers and employees alike prior to commencing work with AC pipe the employer must ensure that there is at least one work assigned as a able person who is qualified and capable of identifying existing asbestos mishaps at the workplace is a sign to determine if jeopardies exist he is qualified to supervise workers and has the authority to take prompt corrective measures to eliminate a hazardous exposure to asbestos employees must follow their organizations safety procedures for a/ c hose and wear the required personal protective equipment studies have shown that done properly working engineering limits such as the moisture method along with scoring and click implements will restrict or impede the exhaust of asbestos fibers below the OSHA exposure level nonetheless this is not mean we walk away from the use of protective garment and equipment careful dream must be given when considering the choices in personal protective paraphernalium and if it is required abusing a powered carbide cut-off received has been shown to generate levels as high-pitched as 1,000 fibers per CC of air or 10,000 seasons the current allow osha exposure restraint selection of PPE is based upon the tasks to be performed as well as industrial hygiene testing to determine the levels of asbestos if any again depending upon the exposure grades PPE might include expendable coveralls gloves respiratory protection foot protection such as rubber boots or chute embraces as well as safety glasses or any other equipment necessary for the job be sure to carefully clean or dispose of equipment so asbestos does not get tracked into the office truck cab or residence never under any circumstances exploit an air hose to remove asbestos plaster dust from your paraphernalium or your garb and by the way be sure to wash your hands before gobbling or boozing to avoid ingesting asbestos containing materials before starting work be sure your organization has an AC pipe plan this plan is important to document activities and plan for work to be performed in the safest room possible important elements of a good project might include but not be limited to establishing a piece arena applying admonish strip signage barricades fencing or other means to keep unauthorized people away monitoring the job allowing merely instructed and authorized laborers into the area ensuring that no access is allowed into the permitted area without the requirement for personal protective rig planning the job to avoid chipping hose by the use of full-length pipe and couplings building a waste containment region is equipped where wrap piping and debris can be contained shall further seek to ensure that the able party inspects and administers works to ensure that work activities are accomplished properly and workers are following safe work practices in most cases hose will need to be exposed by the use of a backhoe or other equipment so take care to avoid abrading the pipe to prevent fiber release remember to wet the piping with amended spray as you go to prevent fiber release fixed water is water that has a surfactant such as a small amount of liquid soap to realize the spray a little sticky be sure there’s enough chamber for saddles tapping machines cutters and of course your containment arrangement a lot of gaskets and packing materials used in years past contained asbestos so take care to keep them wet and direct carefully to avoid damage and the secrete of asbestos fibers as well when possible tube should be removed intact never injure or mash tube to make it easier or more handy always moisten and package each pipe slouse as it’s removed be sure that the plastic wrap is securely affixed and videotapeed to close the pipe discontinues it’s a good idea to use a thick-skulled depict or other special varnish product to shut the cut purposes or undermined parts to prevent fiber release place an asbestos warning label on the piping and stockpile the waste on plastic and containerized in a designated area if trimming tube is necessary simply use material that doesn’t generate junk such as a snap cutter or other specialized gear a snap cutter contains a set of cutting motors on a chain that’s wrap around the pipe hydraulic pressure is applied by squeezing the pedals into the pipe wall until the pipe break-dance be sure to keep a constant spray of mended sea on the part at all duration a single word of forethought carbide tipped cutting blades should never be used to cut a C pipe due to the potential of fiber secrete filled LEDs are designed to trim and bevel tube in order to replicate the factory bevel lathes are usually operated by hand electric or pneumatic superpower in order to trim and bevel the pipe again keep the cutting area wet as these devices can release thorough the different levels of respirable asbestos dust wet taps are used for service bonds such as saddles and organization stops while the tube is under pressure the chamber protects against water leakage creating a dust free activity is secure to treat the certificate as you would any other AC rubbles wrapping and disposing of it properly drei sounding for service ties may be performed in or out of the trench like the soaking sound the equipment is attached with a oppression it’s important to prevent dirt generation so this method will require an amended water spray to prevent asbestos dust from being released be sure to redden with liquid soaking hose or use a HEPA vacuum to remove debris never dry embroil or blow out AC to breeze with contracted breeze under any circumstances there are some cases where abrasive tools and beholds might be necessary for working with AC pipe however these tools must be specially designed by the manufacturer with a incessant afford of sea in order to eradicate or ensure dust remember these methods should only be used when approved by your organization and only for a short time by qualified personnel with a incessant beginning of pressurized spray never jury-rigged a spray section on any paraphernalium not designed by the manufacturer for the work with AC pipe clean up and proper disposal is highly important for safely working with AC pipe we’ve mentioned previously several times but just in case you missed it remember in all AC pipe work avoid creating dust good housekeeping and oversight matters of trash can be handled by covering the sand with a hole tight seam of six mil or more plastic all dusts should be kept wet but not so wet is to generate runoff you might also leave any disposable wears and gloves in the containment as well after finishing the effort the plastic should be carefully folded and sealed to prevent leakage use another coating of plastic around the first layer to ensure incidental spillage and be sure to attach the proper warning label warning labels must be affixed to all scrap trash debris and other asbestos containing materials and debris as well as the containers they will be stored in be sure to plan for a special location to store your consume AC pipe that has been strung with six mil plastic retain wherever there is work that might generate pipe dust or debris descriptions or signs must be clearly announced so that employees will be notified of the hazard properly putting of hazardous waste is mandatory and your neighbourhood hazardous waste agency can provide you with guidance for the suitable dumping procedures we already know that any tool or practice that has the possibility of producing dust must never be used as there is a high probability that dust will be generated beyond the admissible or short-term exposure restrictions therefore must never be used under any circumstances of course we know not to cool clean or use breath to blow a sea tube debris right utilizing these or other methods is not only improper it can be deadly and not only to you and your co-workers you can unknowingly bring us bestest fibers home to their own families on your apparel boots and by many other ways as well think about it you come home and your babies run up to hug your dirty clothing they’ve just been disclosed and so is your wife when she administers your invests in order to wash them yes there have been cases where the family members of works have contracted asbestos referred cancers including cancer ever use the procedures adopted by your organization and as mandated by OSHA you might also obtain and read a supportive booklet developed by the American Water Works Association entitled work practices for asbestos cement pipe the present working paper can provide valuable message for positioning or maintaining asbestos cement tube utilizing safe skills the asbestos found in AC cement pipe is a hazardous cloth but you are eligible to offset applying and handling the product safer by following the rules and taking time to work safely every undertaking can be done in a safe and healthy manner it just takes a bit of struggle and commitment on your part and being aware of the hazards and adopting safe work practices is the key you and your family is worth the effort thank you
