7.1 Personnel Safety

Dress properly. Do not wear loose clothing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing and gloves away from moving parts. Do not overreach. Maintain proper footing and balance at all times to enable better control of the device during unexpected situations. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye protection. Non-skid safety shoes, hard hat or hearing protection must be used in the appropriate settings. Do not repair or adjust energised equipment alone, under any circumstances. Someone capable of providing first aid must always be present for your safety. To work on or near high-voltage equipment, you should be familiar with approved industrial first-aid methods. Always obtain first aid or medical attention immediately after sustaining an injury. Never neglect an injury, no matter how superficial it seems.

7.2 Device Safety

Devices must only be serviced by qualified SKF repair personnel. Use only accessories recommended or provided by SKF or the manufacturer.

7.3 Energised equipment

Never work on energised equipment unless authorised by a responsible authority. Energised electrical equipment is dangerous. Electric shocks from energised equipment can be fatal. If you must perform authorised emergency work on energised equipment, be sure that you comply entirely with approved safety regulations. 1 – 2 QuickCollect User Manual

7.5 Avoiding Damage and Injury

To avoid costly damage to the instrument or injury caused by the instrument falling, place the instrument on a solid stable surface when not in use and do not place any heavy objects on it. Use a damp, clean cloth for cleaning. Do not use cleaning fluids, abrasives or aerosols. These might cause damage, fire or electrical shock.
