Don’t Blow Away the Safety Hazards of Compressed Air

Compressed air is useful, but its power demands respect. Air pressure released close to someone’s ear can damage the ear drum. The same amount of pressure to the eyes can cause blindness. If air gets into the blood stream through even the tiniest cut, it can make its way to the brain and cause permanent disability or death. Never use more pressure than you need and never direct compressed air at yourself or any other worker, for any reason.
