Preventing Fires

• The first step toward prevention is good housekeeping.

• Test the atmosphere before & during hot works.

• Use spark containment (the action of keeping something harmful under control or within limits).

• Inspect all tools and equipment.

• Inspect all connections and hoses for leaks.

• Equipment should be properly grounded.

• Cool down areas where spark is travel.

• Don’t allow junk to accumulate, especially flammables like paint thinner, solvents, gasoline, diesel, etc.
