    One of those Days! "Sh*t Happens.



    OK Guys!
    I admit it, sometimes I can be such a dummy!
    Today whilst checking out a couple of Chillers.
    The type that have acoustic panels attached to their sides which are retained by 90 degree turn panel key locks.
    Both Chillers in series with their controls at the end.
    So I check the second one in and being happy with the view inside. I replace the end panel and lock into place.
    I walk around the side of the chiller to check out the other end.
    "Bang!" (a sheet of steel being dropped type bang) Plant dies!!!
    "What the?" or words to that effect says I.

    Walking back around to the end I had just left. I discovered said replaced panel leaning against the end of the 1st Chiller.

    With its emergency stop in!
    Hence the plant shutdown!
    Being a remote plant room with no-one around, I was able to reset the stop and restart the plant before anyone even noticed.
    So I wrote on my plant report that the Emergency stop had been tested.
    Small positive from a negative I guess.
    I must be getting old as I used to class them as "I want my Mom!" situations nowadays I blame myself.

    Not to worry, it happening all the time to all of us.
    As I always say, "If no one saw and no harm done - It never happened"

    Hi, Grizzly

    Look at all of this from funny side
    .... in my opinion ...

    You were lucky not standing in front that emergency stop
    with your back facing that flying panel

    Best regards, Josip

    It's impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious...

    Don't ever underestimate the power of stupid people when they are in large groups.

    Please, don't teach me how to be stupid....
    No job is as important as to jeopardize the safety of you or those that you work with.

    Back in my carrier service days my mate was working head in the false ceiling on steps. he was on one leg reaching and the trailing foot hit the 'emergency stop' button on the wall. Shut the whole trading floor down mid session. Oh how they laughed whilst they looked at black screens :-)
