Lightoff checksheet


All equipment is set up with hoses and nozzles positioned
All blast equipment has been tested
All manlifts are those designated for sandblasting, and have been tested for functionality
Worksite is clear of non-essential materials and equipment
All remaining equipment within the blast zone is protected
The sandblast maintenance shop is positioned close to the blast pot.
Sandblast locker room is positioned close to the containment entry
A sample demonstration zone has been blasted to the required standard
All work zones have been defined
Blotter test and coupon have been completed (if required).

After crew arrival

All sandblasters fully understand the SSPC standard to be achieved
All sandblasters have been instructed to blast AWAY from the containment
Work zones have been communicated to each sandblaster
Containment monitors are trained and have verified radio contact to pot tenders
Containment inspection
All containment has been fully planned, shrouding inspected and repaired and additional materials purchased as necessary to ensure that all required containment preparation has been fully accomplished.
All containment has been fully accomplished to ensure that no sandblast contaminants will be discharged to air, water or land from this project. Positive air pressure has been introduced to vessel interior to prevent contaminant intrusion when required. CO monitor and proper air filtration is in place to ensure safety of the personnel within the containment.
