SOP 003 Fixed Air Compressor

It is important to have a safe operating procedure for a fixed air compressor to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries. A safe operating procedure outlines the steps that should be taken before, during, and after using a fixed air compressor. These steps include checking the compressor and motor oil levels, examining the power lead for obvious damage, and ensuring that the drive belt and pulley guards are fitted, secure, and functional. The procedure also includes operational safety checks such as adjusting the pressure regulator to suit the particular work requirements, checking air hose connections, and using compressed air power tools responsibly and within manufacturers’ recommended guidelines. Additionally, the procedure includes housekeeping steps such as switching off the machine at the end of work and leaving the machine in a safe, clean, and tidy state.
