SAFETY GUIDELINES

 

 

HELIUM TANKS

  • It is the responsibility of the customer on whose premises the cylinder is housed to comply with OSHA standards of storage and handling.
  • Consult and/or download the Safety Data Sheet P-4602 for compressed helium at the bottom of this page for complete details on safety, storage, and handling.

 

 

AIR DANCERS

  • Keep children and pets away from unit while in operation and/or plugged in.
  • Do not put fingers or other objects in unit while in operation and/or plugged in.
  • To avoid electric shock do not operate in pooled water.
  • Unit must be kept dry at all times, including motor, wiring, and exterior. If unit becomes wet, thoroughly dry before next operation.
  • Use only with a 14-gauge extension cord with a grounded plug to avoid risk of electrical shock or fire. NEVER USE A CORD WITH ANY KIND OF DAMAGE OR WEAR.
  • Make sure the power source is sufficient to meet the requirements of the blower.
  • To prevent overheating the unit, keep air intakes clear at all times.
  • Clogging or blocking the air intakes could result in a fire or electrical hazard.
  • In order to prevent injury do not remove any screens or safety guards from the unit, and avoid objects from coming in contact with fan. Unit damage in this manner will void your warranty.
  • Do not operate unit close to any dangerous areas, such as explosive gases, flammables, heaters, and unventilated environments, which may result in explosions or electrical hazards.
  • Do not use any form of speed control device, as doing so may cause injury or fire.
  • Always place fan on a smooth and leveled surface for safe operation.
  • Do not use unit if damaged.
  • Before cleaning or servicing, unplug unit.
  • All fans in operation must be supervised at all times.
  • Do not sit or stand on fan unit.
  • Unplug fan when not in use.
  • Make sure fan switch is in “OFF” position before plugging into the power source.
  • Make sure hands are dry before handling fan or power cord.
  • Only a qualified electrician should attempt to repair/replace any electrical components.
  • Do not look into fan opening in order to avoid any flying debris from blowing into your face or eyes.
  • Do not expose to rain, water, or snow.
  • Outdoor use: unit must be connected to a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) protected receptacle.

 

 

IN GENERAL, FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES FOR HELIUM SAFETY

  • Do not inhale, or allow anyone else to inhale, any helium from helium-filled balloons, from balloon filling equipment, or from the cylinder. To do so can cause rapid suffocation and sudden death without warning or serious lung damage, which could result in death.
  • This is not a toy; only adults should be permitted to operate this equipment.
  • DO NOT allow children to touch or play with the cylinder or its valve or to operate the balloon-filling equipment.
  • Secure the cylinder to prevent it from falling over. Chain or tie it to a wall, fixed post, or cylinder cart suitable for this purpose.
  • DO NOT remove the cylinder cap until the cylinder is first secured. If the cap is stuck or jammed, notify the supplier.
  • DO NOT leave this cylinder unattended in a public area. Before and after use, store equipment in a safe place where children or unauthorized personnel cannot gain access.
  • DO NOT store or use this cylinder in a closely-confined or poorly-ventilated area, but rather, store or use cylinder in a well-ventilated area. Leaking helium can reduce the amount of oxygen in the air, and in your lungs, below levels necessary to support life, and can produce asphyxiation.
  • DO NOT store or use this cylinder in hot areas (over 125 degrees F) or near flames or electrical devices.
  • DO NOT attempt to transfer helium from this cylinder into any other cylinder.
  • NEVER open the cylinder valve before attaching a balloon-filling regulator to it. Tighten the regulator connection to the cylinder valve with a wrench. DO NOT USE LEAKY EQUIPMENT.
  • SHUT OFF the cylinder valve after each use and when empty. Remove the balloon-filling regulator and replace the cylinder cap prior to returning the cylinder to your supplier.
  • WARNING: TRANSPORT AND USE OF COMPRESSED GASES CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. DO NOT TRANSPORT WITHOUT PROTECTIVE CAP IN CONTROLLED PLACES OR IN ANY OTHER SITUATION.
