How do you handle a flame in a circle?

Avoid coming into touch with your skin or clothes. If necessary, put on protective gloves, clothes, eye protection, and/or facial protection. If necessary, dress in fire-resistant or flame-retardant apparel. Do not try to put out a burning candle with water; it may spread the fire.

If you are not able to avoid touching your skin or clothing, then use common sense when determining how dangerous the situation is. Is the flame very small? Are there any other factors that would indicate this is not a serious situation? Only if you feel confident that you can deal with it safely will it be appropriate to touch the flame or burn material.

If you do decide to touch the flame or burn material, get as much distance between yourself and it as possible. Then use the wind to your advantage by blowing on the flame or burnable material to keep it from spreading.

If you see smoke but no flame, you have created a hazard. Stop what you are doing immediately and call 911 for emergency help.

Smoke, even though it does not appear to be harmful, can lead to asphyxiation if enough of it is generated quickly enough. Also, if you are working with chemicals and they are exposed to heat, such as from a fire, they can release with deadly results.

What precautions should you take when working near an open flame?

Personal Security Anything loose or dangling has the potential to come into touch with the flame. Wear clothing that is snugly fitting to lessen the possibility of the material catching fire. Participants with long hair should keep it away from their faces so it doesn't catch fire. Women who are pregnant or have babies shouldn't work with open flames.

Equipment Safety Open flames can be extremely dangerous if not used properly or handled incorrectly. Flaming torches should never be thrown down a hole or into water, as this could cause them to go out completely. They should also never be placed on a surface that is not heat-resistant. Finally, torches should never be placed within reach of children or anyone who might use them as a toy.

Here are some other pointers for ensuring your safety while working near an open flame:

Don't wear jewelry made of silver or gold. These materials will melt in the presence of oxygen and fuel (such as gasoline or lighter fluid) and release toxic substances into the air. Instead, wear items made of non-toxic materials such as iron or plastic.

If possible, work in a location without combustible materials around you. This means no furniture made of wood, cloth, or other materials that can burn.

Follow all manufacturer's instructions when using a power tool.

What are the three main safety rules when working with open flames?

Personal Security Participants with long hair should keep it away from their faces so it doesn't catch fire. Remove any lengthy jewelry that might catch fire. Safety equipment is also essential. When utilizing a flame, use goggles, especially if you're heating a glass container or working with chemicals. Keep out of reach of children.

Liability Security Workers must be aware of their legal rights when dealing with potentially dangerous materials. In some states, employees are not liable for accidents that happen while they're on the job; only employers are responsible. Find out how your state defines "employee" for liability purposes. If you aren't sure whether you're covered, ask your employer and/or insurance company. Also, find out what actions an employer can take against an employee if they feel the employee isn't meeting safety standards.

Identification Most states require workers to wear identification badges while at work. These badges should include name, address, and telephone number of a contact person at the workplace. If there's no one available at the workplace who can provide this information, then use the phone number listed on the ID card as a contact point.

Training Employees should always follow all safety instructions written on labels or provided by management. If someone is hired as a temporary worker and won't be offered training, then they shouldn't be expected to know about safety procedures already in place.

Fire prevention is the best method of fire control. Basic fire prevention measures include using electrical wiring and equipment as per code, keeping flammable materials away from heat sources, and maintaining any landscaping that may provide fuel for burning material.

The best way to defend yourself against fire is with early detection. Keep an eye on the environment for smoke signals, and know how to respond properly. You can use the following list as a guide to what action to take in different situations:

If you detect smoke, close all windows, doors, and vents to prevent smoke from spreading inside the home. Call your local fire department for guidance.

If you experience a fire, call 911 immediately. Tell the operator where you are located and what type of fire you have. Stay on the phone with the dispatcher until help arrives.

How do you hold a fire?

It is advisable to wear short sleeves or clothing that is tight and near to the skin. When working with an open flame, roll up long shirt sleeves and exercise extreme caution. Garments that are baggy or loose-fitting will hang closer to the fire and combustible solutions, potentially becoming too close for comfort. Rolled up short sleeves can come into contact with hot surfaces of the grill or furnace and cause third-degree burns.

Holding a lit cigarette in your hand is very dangerous because the tip of the cigarette can get very hot and could burn your fingers if it touches them. The best way to hold a burning cigarette is with a non-smoking friend's help. They can hold the cigarette while you put some distance between yourself and it so that it doesn't go out.

Fireworks are extremely dangerous if not handled properly. Never try to lift or move any object that is firing a rocket or other type of shell. Even if the object isn't moving, it may still be shooting sparks. This could cause another object to trigger its own explosion. Also, keep children away from fireworks. If they find them, they may think they are playing with them which could have serious consequences.

Fireworks can be dangerous if not handled properly. Don't attempt to lift or move any object that is firing a rocket or other type of shell. It may still be shooting sparks.
