OSHA 7110 Safe Bolting Principles & Practices
Virtually all industrial bolting activities fall into one of three general categories, based on the purpose of the bolted joints being assembled: pressure vessels and piping, machinery or mechanical joints, and structural connections. The same basic principles generally apply to all three types of bolting. However, there are sufficient differences in techniques and tooling to justify focusing attention on the distinct requirements associated with each category, while covering the things that all have in common. This course is targeted to first-line mechanical operators and those who supervise their work. This course can and should be presented to groups of individuals with a common specialization. In most cases, the work of the participants will specialize in either pressure vessel, mechanical, or structural bolting. As reflected in the table below, there are 14 basic modules, from which 9 are selected in each of the three tracks, emphasizing the bolting problems in each area of interest. The safety and practical exercises (modules 13 and 14) feature slightly different examples, tools, and demonstration fixtures for each track. Should a general overview course be desired, two or three of the versions may be combined covering the appropriate modules and integrating the pertinent practical examples. Additional time will be necessary beyond the normal 8 hours.
