Compressed Gas Safety

December 19, 2013 Dave Weber No Comments



 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 plant.  One day there was 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.

The Compressed Gas Association’s (CGA) website has posters, one-page safety alerts, and other compressed gas safety resources that you can download for free.   Just click on “Other” and then “Safety Alerts” and “Safety Posters”.

The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee also has a web-page devoted to compressed gas safety.  It covers: cylinder marking, storage, moving, use, and poison gases.
