Flash Fires And Flammible Fumes

May 28, 2012

Burn injuries can be the most devastating and painful injuries one can sustain. they often leave the burn victim deformed. Often when paint, pest or other substances are sprayed or applied, they have gases which are flammable.

When these materials are sprayed or applied relevant codes and accepted industry practices require that all electric and pilot lights be turned off when the spraying or application is occurring. Often a single twitch of electricity or a minor spark is sufficient to cause an ignition or explosion. When a light switch is turned on, or a fan motor or a pilot light comes in contact with a flammable fume, an unexpected explosion can occur.
