Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use

Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use

FUNCTIONAL EARTH TERMINALS in the measuring circuit. A case of REASONABLY FORESEEABLE MISUSE is that the OPERATOR might disconnect the PROTECTIVE CONDUCTOR TERMINAL so that the FUNCTIONAL EARTH TERMINAL can float above earth potential. This allows the OPERATOR to make a floating measurement, but introduces a HAZARD . If the OPERATOR should inadvertently connect the FUNCTIONAL EARTH TERMINAL to a HAZARDOUS LIVE VOLTAGE , then the chassis of the measuring equipment could also be connected to the HAZARDOUS LIVE VOLTAGE , and the OPERATOR or a bystander could receive an electric shock from the

Safety of electronic equipment

Safety of electronic equipment

equipment shall be not more than 5 l. If, however, the usage of liquid is such that more than 5 l is consumed in 8 h, the quantity stored is permitted to be increased to that required for an 8 h operation. Oil or equivalent fluids used for lubrication or in a hydraulic system shall have a flash point of 149 °C or higher, and the reservoir shall be of sealed construction. The system shall have provision for expansion of the fluid and shall incorporate means for pressure relief. This requirement is not applicable to lubricating oils which are applied to points of friction in quantities which would contribute negligible fuel to a fire. Except under conditions given below, replenishable liquids such as printing inks shall have a flash point of 60 °C or higher, and shall not be under sufficient pressure to cause atomisation.

Structural Assessment For Safety-Related Equipment Under Aircraft Impact

Structural Assessment For Safety-Related Equipment Under Aircraft Impact

Aircraft impact is being considered in the structural integrity assessment of nuclear facilities as a beyond- design accident scenario (US NRC, 2009). The nuclear structure will undergo considerable damage caused by the extreme load due to aircraft impact. In order to preclude such a damage, it may be physically protected through the exterior wall. However, the impact loading will generate shock vibration in the structure itself and it may induce damage to the internal equipment. Even if the safety-related equipment has been qualified for its capability to perform the required safety functions under a seismic event (IEEE, 2004), the structural assessment for safety-related equipment from the shock vibration caused by aircraft impact needs to be estimated because the seismic vibration and shock vibration resulting from aircraft impact impose fundamentally different loading.

Introduction of Innovative Equipment in Mining: Impact on Occupational Health and Safety

Introduction of Innovative Equipment in Mining: Impact on Occupational Health and Safety

The purchase of semi-automated bolter (projects 1 and 1.5) was intended essentially to reduce or eliminate specific risks for the operators (the steps up to the platform, handling of mesh, exposure to rock fall). The goal was achieved in this case, as proven by the decrease in the IR. In the mining industry, some actors assume that automated technologies are unreliable [20] [21]. This perception appears to be a major barrier to the spread of automated equipment in underground mining. Automation usually brings many benefits. It offers a safer work- ing environment by removing the operators from hazardous situations (as our results show), enhances precision (e.g. in drilling), allows mining in spaces not previously accessible to humans, and reduces the manning of equipment.

SAFETY CODE FOR MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC X-RAY EQUIPMENT AND INSTALLATIONS

SAFETY CODE FOR MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC X-RAY EQUIPMENT AND INSTALLATIONS

Widespread utilisation of ionising radiation for multifarious applications in medicine, industry, agriculture, research etc. has brought in its wake the need for exercising regulatory controls to ensure safety of users, members of the public and the environment. The Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB), constituted under the Atomic Energy Act, 1962 by the Government of India, is entrusted with the responsibility of developing and implementing appropriate regulatory measures aimed at ensuring radiation safety in all applications involving ionising radiation. One of the ways to meet these responsibilities is to develop and enforce specific codes and standards dealing with radiation safety aspects of various applications of ionising radiation to cover the entire spectrum of operations, starting from design of radiation equipment, their installation and use to decommissioning/disposal.

Smart Health and Safety Equipment Monitoring System for Distributed Workplaces

Smart Health and Safety Equipment Monitoring System for Distributed Workplaces

device manufacturers utilise RFID systems to enhance the tracking and tracing of patients and equipment, reduce errors in patient care, effectively manage health resources and conduct assessment and prediction in advance. However, using RFID systems entails serious challenges, such as financial, practical, organisational and privacy and security issues. To achieve scalability, synchronisation and trust between parties, scholars have utilised attribute-based access control (ABAC) schemes that are built on centralised models as the supply chain. Figueroa et al. proposed and implemented a prevention system based on an ABAC in an RFID system by using a blockchain decentralised model. The proposed system aims at solving security and safety risks and conducting a trustworthy tracking and tracing of medical authorities by preventing access to incorrect areas, which could lead to human errors or external threats. These controlled-access strategies are accomplished by using the decentralised application (DApp), which interfaces with smart contract and blockchain technology. Apart from their use to solve issues in current centralised systems, smart contract and blockchain technology can flexibly secure RFID systems by offering the trust and support relationship of the ABAC model. To demonstrate the viability of the implementation, the authors deployed four recommended tools in a local and test net environment: ETH Network Status, Etherscan Ropsten Testnet Network, Infura dashboard and truffle test. Hence, the system can permit or deny access to assets such as surgical devices which contain a coding scheme (connected RFID tag) that restricts their access to certain areas. Although the suitability of the proposed system was validated for healthcare systems, it requires an underlying business model [16].

Safety modeling and simulation of multi-factor coupling heavy-equipment airdrop

Safety modeling and simulation of multi-factor coupling heavy-equipment airdrop

three categories: the mathematic analytical method, the test statistical method and the expert evaluation method. The test statistical method falls into the flight test, the hardware-in- the-loop simulation and the mathematic modeling and simula- tion. The modeling and simulation method is an important method for the complex system research, in which not only the cost can be greatly reduced, but also retrieve data that would otherwise be difficult to obtain, especially the data of the system’s dynamic characteristic in multi-factor complex flight situations. This paper first builds the multi-body system dynamic model of the heavy-equipment airdrop system, along with contingency variables, which include aircraft malfunc- tions and unfavorable environments. To achieve this, a virtual simulation system for the safety research of the heavy- equipment airdrop in the multi-factor complex scenarios is developed through MATLAB/Simulink, C language and Flightgear (a system used to study the dynamic characteristic of the heavy-equipment airdrop in the multi-factor complex flight situations). Data is then extracted. This model serves as the foundation for the subsequent quantitative safety research.

The Safety of Personal Hygiene and Beauty Therapy Equipment Used in Commercial Settings

The Safety of Personal Hygiene and Beauty Therapy Equipment Used in Commercial Settings

• Electrical Design: Personal hygiene and beauty therapy equipment is generally intended for occasional personal use by one or two individual consumers. Accordingly, critical electrical elements, such as motor interlocks, and the device’s intended duty cycle are designed to support this limited use. However, in a commercial setting, such as a salon or spa, an individual device may be used nearly continuously by multiple operators during the course of a single day. A personal hygiene and beauty therapy device subject to such heavy use is more likely to malfunction or fail completely without warning. • Enclosure and Internal
