A separate Safety Service Attachment needs to be completed for every single item. This Safety Service Form is legally binding and can ONLY be completed by an authorized and qualified staff member.
Welch vacuum pumps are often used in laboratory applications that could involve contact with dangerous chemicals. The overriding concern in operating, maintaining, or repairing equipment in the laboratory environment is always for safety – safety for all personnel who could potentially be exposed to chemical contamination. When sending a pump in for repair, keep in mind the safety of shipping and repair personnel.
- As a first step toward reducing potential hazards, always clean and decontaminate pumps per the procedures on the Welch safety form prior to shipment.
- Additionally, Welch (and the law) requires full disclosure of potential contaminants on the Safety Service form to be provided prior to issuing a return authorization. The information on this form will dictate the handling needed in the repair process and is vital to the safety of our workers. We appreciate your cooperation on this.
