Topic - Ladder Safety


    Accidental Sprinkler activation can be a costly and dangerous mistake - which is why we are discussing them today.

    Automatic fire sprinkler systems also known as wet pipe systems are widely regarded as the most effective method of controlling fires caused by a broad range of hazards.

    A wet pipe sprinkler system employs automatic sprinkler heads attached to a pipes containing water and connected to a water supply so that water discharges immediately.

    Dry fire sprinkler systems, on the other hand, do not have water in the direct non-heated sprinkler piping, but only pressurized air or nitrogen.
    The pressurized air holds back the water supply at a main dry-pipe valve. When a fire occurs and the sprinkler activates, the air pressure drops and the main dry-pipe valve opens to release the water into the piping system to discharge from the sprinklers.

  • When you are working on RJA sites with Fire Sprinklers you should;

  • 1. Be Aware of all sprinkler heads in the areas prior to starting work.

  • 2. Find out the steps required to shut off the sprinklers. For the RJA Sites, you should call the Site Foreman, or building security. ** Be Aware that if Fire Sprinklers are activated - the Fire Department may come automatically to site.

  • 3. Sprinkler systems are NOT intended to support any weight - do not hang items or place any items on sprinkler heads or pipes.

  • 4. If sprinklers are activated - turn off all power immediately. Electricity and Power cables don't mix and can shock/kill you.

  • 5. When carrying or moving long items, check the pathway for Sprinklers Heads.

  • 6. Check with your site foreman if there are Fire Sprinkler head Guards available to place around sprinklers while you are working near them.

  • Now I have some Questions for all of you !

  • Who should you call if a Sprinkler Head activates.

  • What are some other hazards if a large amount of water is released in the work area ? (Answers could be; Damage to equipment, damage to power/battery tools and Damage to fixtures.)

  • Does anyone have any questions about Fire Sprinklers.
