Compressed Gas Safety

 The improper handling of compressed gases can result in disaster.  In the 1980’s I had a friend in South Dakota who owned a welding gas p23s an acetylene gas explosion that totally destroyed the facility! 

Here is a link to free 11-page safety booklet  by Airgas on compressed gas safety.  This booklet is well illustrated and covers  compressed gas handling and transportation.
