Introducing the Ozilite Flameless Lighter, a safety lighter currently used for the elimination of open flame in high risk environments. For the past 10 years, Ozilite has led the industry in fire prevention technology for numerous applications. State-of-the-art medical facilities, retirement communities, correctional facilities, industrial and manufacturing plants, space and aeronautical launch sites, and oil processing platforms all currently use the Ozilite Flameless Lighters. The Ozilite line of products are an extremely effective electric heating technology built to deliver the right amount of targeted heat energy without an open flame.
Many accidents have taken place over the last month in the oil industry and if you look back over the past few years, many of these incidents have cause millions of dollars in damage to property and caused numerous harmful effects to the environment. Many of these accidents were caused and/or ended in explosions in and around open flames.
Ozilite has placed, not only in the oil industry, but in numerous industries where flammable materials are used or are present on-site, their flameless lighter products. Risk management and the installation of the Ozilite flameless lighter have led to reduced insurance costs, increased government compliance, and of course, much safer work environments. Together, through education and proper placement of safety products, like the Ozilite flameless lighter, we can reduce a large amount of future accidents. Safety and the prevention of injuries, damage to property, and our environment should be the focus of corporations worldwide.
The reason that we are requesting the press to assist in this is because Ozilite would like to draw more attention to some of the safety equipment available for prevention of oil fires, oil spills and other oil related accidents. Safe oil platform operations, pipeline maintenance, oil transportation protocol and safe oil drilling practices combined with the reduction of high risk behavior has been shown to greatly reduce the number of oil spills, oil fires, and injuries on the job site.
The environment and the countless lives affected due to oil spills is not completely preventable, but it can be reduced significantly by promoting safety precautions combined with creating a safe work environment. What can we do to increase the safety in the drilling, refining, and transportation of crude oil? There are many standard’s in place. The EPA, for example, implemented the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasures (SPCC) Plan in order to have protocol in place for when accidents occur and focus on prevention.
We feel that the answer is education. Although the Ozilite Flameless Lighter can not prevent spills caused by transportation of crude oil, Ozilite does prevent many accidents each year by eliminating fires caused by an open flame in environments where flammable materials are produced, transported, or used regularly.
