MCAA’s Guide to Pressure Testing Safety highlights the safe work practices that can help prevent worker injury during hydrostatic and pneumatic testing of steel and copper piping systems.
Your workers will learn about:
- Hazards associated with pressure testing
- Common injuries resulting from pressure testing
- Seven causes of piping system failures during pressure test operations that can result in injury, and how to avoid them
- Safe work practices for hydrostatic testing
- Safe work practices for pneumatic testing
The guide also contains tools to help you with pre-test safety planning, including sample checklists for both hydrostatic and pneumatic testing. A sample pneumatic test permit is also included.
A safety training video on the topic of safe pressure testing is also available. Accompanying materials will assist you in highlighting key training points, documenting worker training and confirming that workers understand the training concepts.
