When it comes to the safety of your employees, nothing is more important than ensuring they have the necessary information to make safe, sound decisions.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), for every 300,000 cases of at-risk behavior, there are approximately 300 recordable shock injuries.
In addition, when performing maintenance in and around your vacuum heat treatment furnace, working with the hot zone elements and the Variable Reactance Transformer (VRT) can be tricky.
One of the hazards that comes with such work is the risk of getting shocked, which is why it is essential to know how to utilize safe electrical practices when performing equipment maintenance.
In the spirit of safety, Ipsen has provided a short video titled “The VRT and Safe Electrical Practices” that can be viewed on Ipsen’s new blog, www.IpsenHarold.com. From explaining the function of the VRT to discussing the multiple benefits of installing resistors, this video outlines valuable tips for ensuring safe electrical and VRT practices. It also covers a few things to consider and check before performing maintenance on your hot zone – all so you can safely do the work without getting shocked.
