Safety when using pneumatics

It is essential to be careful when using pneumatics to build circuits and follow the essential safety rules.

  1. Never blow compressed air at anyone
  2. Don’t turn the main air supply on until the circuit is connected up. Disconnected pipes can whip round and cause injury.
  3. If air is leaking from a joint – turn the air off
  4. Always turn air off before altering the circuit
  5. Keep fingers clear of the piston rods
  6. Wear safety glasses when building and operating pneumatic systems.
