My daughter had this happen when she was an apprentice with clear primer/cleaner. She did the eyewash then went to a walk in clinic and the so called Doctor said there was no problem. A year later she has eye problems and goes to an eye Dr. The primer burnt her eyes and changed the shape of her retina because it wasn't treated properly when it happened.
The worse part is now the company is denying any record of the incedent which is a lie because I worked for the same company and made sure it was done.
She had her safety glasses on put it went over the top of them. Not something to mess around with.

No advice . . . just congratulations on the new opportunity!

One thing about working for a bigger company is that you have more people to learn from. There is no substitute for collective experience.

Good stories. Before I was smart and wore safety glasses I got boiling flux in my right eye at a trailer park that we had the entire water system down. I was raiding random lunch boxes for water

From Calgary here. Ive done my fair share of cast iron. Expect leaks. We do all MJ Clamp up here in Canada. have a hanger 12" from each end and anything longer than 30" have 2 hangers. If its MJ clamp make sure all your nuts are in the same position.. take it slow dont be afraid to jump down off your ladder and look up at your joint to make sure its straight. Other than that. have fun its a really good job.. one of my favorites. Bring a chalk line and a laser really helps too to lay everything out. I do layout on the ground first for my hangers/etc and then laser it up.

Chances are you wont be using black swan. the stuff is a nightmare to work with. But if you are bring a rag and wow.. just gloves gloves gloves.
