Have you revised your Written Scheme recently?25/10/2013
We received a frantic phone call this month from someone who’d just received a fine for not having their ‘Compressor Certificate’ which in actual fact was the Air Receiver/Tank Certification. The Compressed Air is stored in the Air Receiver/ Air Tank, so it is the most dangerous part of the Air Compressor if it is not regularly inspected (which is a visual and ultrasonic inspection) and regularly drained of condensate, to be correctly disposed of through an Oil/Water Separator System.
We talked the Garage through the legislation (Pressure Safety System Regulations 2000) surrounding Compressed Air Installations, explaining the Written Scheme of Examination and directing them to http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg178.pdf for more details. We then organised the production of a Written Scheme and are now on with the Ultrasonic testing of the Air Receiver. If the garage had been a customer of Algar Air’s already we’d have made sure they knew about the legislation and helped them comply with it.
