Safety Daily by IRWIN Industries. Rise and shine!
Your safety thought for this morning is…
Handling drums or barrels:
  • Wear gloves for protection from cuts caused by mill burrs or rough edges.
  • Test the weight of a drum before putting a hard strain on it.  It may be empty.
  • Use a barrel tong or approved mechanical aides whenever possible.
  • Before pulling drums over on their sides, be sure you and others are clear.
  • Do not roll drums with your feet.
  • Check that everyone is clear before starting a drum down a skid or gravity conveyor.
  • Do not try to upend a filled drum without help or mechanical assistance.
  • Do not upend drums on a slippery surface.  Upend drums quickly to prevent slipping.
  • Be sure to relieve pressure from a drum before opening it.  Stand clear of the drum when relieving pressure.
