PAN’s are intended to convey information on various subjects to raise awareness of the standards, regulations, codes and other applicable best practices related to the subjects. PAN’s are never intended by the authors, editors, or publishers to take the place of the proper application of standards, regulations, codes or other applicable best practices that apply to the subject matter. PAN’s are intended to help the reader become aware of some of the requirements associated with each subject and where to find some of the applicable information. PAN’s have been used as a part of a comprehensive training program to help raise awareness, but they should never be solely relied upon. It is the hope of the authors, editors and publishers that the awareness created by the PAN’s leads to an increase of quality allowing work to be performed in a safe manner while allowing for efficiency that comes from proper training and understanding. Readers are expected to use their best judgement when applying information supplied in the PAN’s to specific circumstances and conditions.
