Compressed air safety! March 19, 2016 14:04

Mr Airhead

We’ll be using our Mr Airhead character from time-to-time to make our readers aware of best practice use of compressed air, innovations and product developments. 

The safe use of compressed air is a good place to start. It is often said that compressed air is a source of safe and reliable power.

We endorse that view with the caveat that the risks associated with the use of compressed air need to be understood and subject to the application of sound engineering practice.

If you behave like an airhead you can expect to get hurt or cause harm to others. Please don’t do it; use compressed air, air tools, and air operated equipment for their intended purpose as advised by the product manufacturers.

Don’t just take our word for it…. follow the link below and see what British Compressed Air Society have to say on the subject of working safely with compressed air.
