APTI-446 INSPECTION PROCEDURES AND SAFETY
Who Should Attend
Who Should Attend:
This basic course is focused specifically on safety procedures for inspecting and evaluating air pollution control systems. This class is intended for compliance engineers, scientists and technicians (or field inspectors) who are responsible for inspection of industrial emission sources.
Those completing this course will gain a basic understanding of the information associated with expected safety procedures that should be followed when evaluating air pollution control systems. Attendees will be able to identify critical safety parameters associated with the following potential hazards encountered in an inspection: • Inhalation hazards • Burn hazards • Electrical shock hazards • Explosion and fire hazards • Proper ladder climbing techniques • Hazards involved in walking on elevated surfaces • Ground level walking hazards • Eye hazards • Heat and cold stress • Confined space entry • Use of portable inspection instruments • Elements of a good safety program
This course presents safety procedures for inspecting and evaluating air pollution control systems. Practical techniques are described to aid plant operations personnel and regulatory agency inspectors in minimizing health and safety hazards. Emphasis is placed on the early recognition and avoidance of problems. Unique combinations of hazards found around air pollution control systems are presented. The use of personal protection equipment is discussed. This course is intended to supplement general industrial hygiene and safety procedures which should be followed by all personnel engaged in field work.
Completion of Courses SI:445 – Introduction to Baseline Source Inspection Techniques, and SI:446 – Air Pollution Source Inspection, or comparable courses/work experience with air pollution control equipment.
