Safety and Savings Tips for March 2012 From All Safety Products, Inc.

March is a good Month for Poison Prevention! Poison prevention tops list of spring safety tips

Employers need to review or implement their company policy for checking their own hazardous chemicals and poisonous substances located on their own company premises. Poison prevention isn't just for households!

When spring begins on March 20, thoughts of household cleaning and the beginning of yard work come to mind. It should also remind us of National Poison Prevention Week, always the third week of March. This year marks its 50th anniversary.

Congress established this event to raise awareness and reduce unintentional poisonings. Nationally, poison centers conduct several activities to elevate local attentiveness to the dangers. * You are encouraged to open windows and turn on fans when you use strong chemicals, and to keep them in their original containers rather than in food containers or unlabeled bottles. Always read the directions for use and disposal.

Compressed Air Dangers commonly called Industry's Fourth Utility.

Compressed air powers many industrial tools because it is less expensive and more convenient to use than electricity. The psi (pounds per square inch) ratings of tools used in heavy industry, and for tasks such as breaking up concrete, are far higher than those used in maintenance and construction work. Air pressure no greater than 30 psi is advised for these jobs.

Consider pressure washer uses

You can walk into a home improvement store and buy one, but that doesn't mean that a pressure washer is harmless. Think of it in the same category as chain saws, brush cutters and other commercial equipment. Here are some of the psi ratings sold: 1,200-1,500 psi: An electric unit that's good for household and automotive cleaning jobs. 1,500-2,000 psi: A moderate strength unit used for jobs like deck cleaning. It comes in gas or electric. 2,200 to 3,500 psi. A high pressure unit for jobs like cleaning concrete and siding, usually gas powered.


Safe set-up, storage of a home air compressor

Air compressors are some of the most helpful pieces of equipment a handyman can own. But using them inappropriately can lead to injury and damage to your home or property.
