Air Compressor Safety Tips

• Follow manufacturer’s recommendations for proper operation and routine maintenance. Despite safety features such as fan and belt guards, only trained technicians should adjust compressor components.

• Do not adjust safety, blow-off or control valves without referring to the operating manual. For example, improper adjustments can cause “air explosions” from the safety valve – startling and perhaps even injuring experienced operators.

• Do not change filters or check fluids while the compressor is running. Spraying fluids such as oil can cause burns or serious injury.

• Check for the correct tire pressure. Improperly inflated tires can affect road handling, damage the tire and make transportation dangerous.

• Check for excessive tread wear on the compressor tires.

• Replace worn or unreadable safety stickers on enclosure.

• Ensure that pressure and temperature gauges are working.

• Carefully inspect mechanical components for rust, wear and proper operation: hinges, tow bars, hitches, safety chains, tires and lug nuts.
