Lesson Summary
• Plumbing-related accidents are a result of unsafe acts and working in unsafe conditions.

• Many important safety procedures (including OSHA regulations) help plumbers remain safe on the job site.

• Plumbing safety should cover each of the following areas: personal protective equipment, respiratory protection, material safety data sheets, hand and power tools, excavations and confined-space operations, emergency-response plan.

• Personal protective equipment (PPE) includes hard hats; safety gloves, goggles, shoes; and proper fall protection equipment.

Besides knowing how to use a PPE properly, it is important to inspect it regularly and take good care of it.

• Working underground or in suffocating atmospheres can pose a serious threat to a plumber's health. In such situations, it becomes mandatory to use a respirator.

Air-purifying respirators, supplied-air respirators, and self-contained breathing apparatus are the three kinds of respirators that can protect workers.
