|In response to Re: galvanized pipe cut with acetelene safety|
The Zinc coated galvanized pipe has been cut many times with acetelyne torches and OSHA has discovered it to cause a toxic vapor gas that is damaging to nasal tissue and mucous membranes, especially when performed in unvented areas, and has since named it to be an illegal act for an employer to order such work performed, without supplied fresh air. 20 years ago the regulations were in effect, and that is the reason they were good about workmans comp. treatment for chemical pneumonia. What you refer to as he hasn't been the same man since, sounds like he is developing complications, and should be referred to competent medical evealuation for documentation that the current symptoms are related to the past treatment. If this is the case, it is very likely that they will be very good about continuing treatment from workmans comp, since they treated it initially. If you need more information, e-mail me.
