Fire risk analysis of welding and cutting operation

I. welding and cutting process and typical fire cases welding and cutting are the collective name of welding and cutting. In actual production and life, people usually call arc welding and arc cutting electric welding operation. Using the high temperature of the arc to heat and melt the joint of two metal parts, so as to create a permanent connection between metal atoms and molecules, which is called arc welding. The method of using arc high temperature to heat and melt the disconnected part of two metal parts, so as to cause the fracture between metal atoms and molecules and get permanent separation is called the first choice for customers to use safe and assured arc cutting. The production process of welding and cutting mainly includes gas welding, gas cutting, arc welding, arc cutting, carbon arc gouging, plasma cutting and other different methods. Welding and cutting are all open fire operations, which have the characteristics of high temperature, high pressure, flammability and explosion, and often deal with flammable and combustible substances and pressure vessels, so there is a greater risk of fire and explosion. Huafeng spandex people said that since the 1990s, major fire accidents caused by welding and cutting operations have occurred frequently, leaving a painful lesson for people. On February 14th, 1993, a major fire accident occurred in Linxi department store in East mining area of Tangshan City, Hebei Province, killing 81 people and injuring 53 people, with a direct economic loss of 4.012 million yuan. The cause of the fire was that the welding slag fell on the combustibles in the furniture hall during the operation of welders. On November 25th, 1994, a self-employed business in the shopping mall in Danzhou City, Hainan Province, broke the rules of electric welding. The sparks of electric welding ignited clothes and caused a fire, burning 393 stalls, resulting in a direct economic loss of 15million yuan. On November 20, 1996, the illegal electric welding in Hong Kong Kerry building caused a fire, killing 40 people and burning 81 people. The fire continued to burn for 21 hours, causing serious economic losses. On August 26th, 1998, a fire broke out in the first people's Hospital of Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province, killing 14 people and injuring 14 people. The fire was caused by Chen Chaoxin, an unlicensed welder, who cut against regulations and splashed molten beads on sponges and other combustibles when removing the air from the purification room on the fourth floor of the inpatient building ③ when the screw rod limit spring was pressed too tightly. On December 25th, 2000, the Dongdu building in Luoyang City, Henan Province, was caught in a fire when the electric welding sparks splashed onto the combustible materials on the second floor of the underground during the electric welding operation of welders Wang Chengtai and others, resulting in 309 deaths and 7 injuries. The direct economic loss was a human tragedy of 2.75 million yuan in China's large aircraft, automobile engine shell and wheel hub structures. On September 4, 2003, the former Soviet Union "Kiev" aircraft carrier was refitted in Shanhaiguan shipyard, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province. During electric welding, combustibles were ignited and a fire broke out, killing two workers. On July 21, 2005, a cold storage factory in shewobo Town, Qixia City, Shandong Province, was sentenced to imprisonment for major accident crime because of a fire caused by the wrong operation of electric welder Li, with a direct economic loss of more than 1.5 million yuan. The major fire accidents caused by electric welding, especially the great fire accident in Luoyang Dongdu building, not only have caused a huge impact on the local economic development and social stability, but also have attracted the high attention of the leaders of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, shocking both at home and abroad. So, what are the reasons why welding and cutting operations often cause fire and explosion accidents? It is true that the equipment and energy used in welding and cutting have certain fire hazards, but the main reason for the occurrence of fire and explosion accidents is not the equipment and energy itself. The vast majority of them are caused by people's mental paralysis, improper operation, lax system and ineffective implementation of safety measures in welding and cutting operations. Therefore, it is of great significance to analyze the fire risk of welding and cutting operations, find out the causes of common accidents, and explore the corresponding preventive countermeasures
