PRESSURE

What controls are available to mitigate risk?

  •  Following lock out/tag out procedures; isolate and/or depressurize equipment prior to beginning work

  •  Use of blinds and skillets for isolation of pressure

  •  Designing and installing facilities that allow isolation and depressurizing; use bleed valves and pressure relief valves

  •  Verify pressure readings on equipment to make sure it is depressurized

  •  Keep the mindset that pressure may be present; anticipate residual pressure; keep yourself and others out of the line of fire
