Compressed Gas Safety


Compressed gas cylinders can be extremely hazardous, not only because of the contents of the cylinders, but because of the pressure of the gases within the cylinders, so there is a dual concern. When a cylinder is compromised, there’s worry about how the container itself may behave, but also about the potential from harm from whatever chemical is stored inside.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Identify hazards associated with cylinder dispensing and control components and contents
(2) Recognize identification labels and markings on compressed gas cylinders
(3) Recall practices to safely use compressed gas cylinders and their components
(4) Identify safe methods of moving and storing compressed gas cylinders.
