These condensers were in a crate, properly packed and labelled. Ignorant of the meaning of the symbols used, transport workers turned the crate over. The condensers were so badly damaged that they could not be repaired. 1, Transport Packing firms, insurers and also most carriers give information on appropriate packaging. External and internal packing materials, closure of crates and corrosion protection must be chosen in accordance with anticipated transport stress on the basis of: • the transport medium; • the transport chain (DIN 30780) (duration of transport and storage, transshipment, intermediate storage, storage conditions); • climatic influence during transport and at the destination (DIN 50010).

Many fires at construction sites have been caused by welding operations (see also A TI -International DE6-111). Flying sparks can start a fire, even from far away. Often, the after-effects of heat generated during welding is the starting point of a fire. Prescribed protective measures, such as the use of coverplates and cooling down of a working area, are frequently neglected deliberately by personnel, particularly in the case of minor repair jobs. Furthermore, this neglectful conduct is often not objected to by supervisory staff if the protective measures concerned would appear to have a delaying effect on the work to be carried out.
