It’s that time of year when we have projects ramping up all over the country. In fact, we have projects ramping up on every continent except Antarctica. We’re stretched about as thin as one could imagine.
When you’re running “full tilt”, if you’re not careful… you sometimes forget just what you’re working WITH.
Here at CHC, we convert shipping containers into housing modules. Plain and simple. It means that before the carpenters, electricians and plumbers start ravaging those poor boxes, somebody got in there first with a plasma cutter, a torch or a welder.
And as you can probably imagine, with all the metal fabrication we do, we use a lot of oxygen and acetylene in our shops.
We’ve all played practical jokes, filling plastic bags with “go juice” and then exploding them for laughs… but combining oxygen and acetylene is a pretty serious matter, truth be told.
You see these delivery trucks on the road all the time, going from shop to shop, delivering bottles for welders and fabricators.
Ever wonder what would happen if one of these trucks was involved in a traffic accident? Check out the video:
So the next time one of these bad boys passes you up on the road, I suggest that you give him as much room as possible.
Till next time…
