Safety Tips for Using an Industrial Air Compressor

Commercial or industrial air compressors come in a range of size and capacities, ranging from small 6 litre portables to larger truck mounted diesels or stationary models that run on 3 phase electricity.  Whatever the type of air compressor you need to get the job done. Here are some straightforward safety tips we recommend to keep your or your personnel safe.
  • First and foremost, make sure that the personnel using the equipment are adequately trained. They should read and understand the operator’s manual and be familiar with the equipment. They should also be to self-diagnose problems with the equipment, and be trained in what to do in an emergency.
  • Second, and it should go without saying, that when operating an air compressor, it’s essential to use safety equipment, including full length workwear, safety boots, eye protection, hearing protection, gloves and masks. Personal safety is everyone’s responsibility.
  • Thirdly, safety is a priority. Never, ever point the jet nozzle at people or animals or yourself, it’s extremely hazardous and you risk sustaining or causing serious injury. Safety breaches should be taken very seriously. They must always be reported, investigated properly with appropriate action taken.

Before work starts complete a safety check

For many professionals, an air compressor is an invaluable tool of the trade. Even though they are build tough, air compressors can be susceptible to changes in moisture, temperature, and position which makes daily checks one of the necessities of life.

Power supply safety

If the air compressor is powered by electricity, ensure that it’s plugged into a properly earthed (or grounded) outlet, with a residual current device (RCD) to protect against damage or electrocution.  Improper installation can damage the electrical panel of the compressor and potentially cause a fire. When there is no reliable source of electricity available, a diesel air compressor is the go to solution.  To prolong the life of the engine, remember to keep the fuel tank clean to ensure there’s no residual build up.
