Compressed Gas Safety Awareness

Consider some ways we use compressed gas: Portable breathing systems, Acetylene torches on construction sites, Fuel systems for industrial trucks and aboard nuclear submarines, Ethylene oxide sterilizing system, Manufacturing and processing plants.. For safety, clear labeling is required by the US Department of Transportation (DOT), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Compressed Gas Association (CGA). Pressurized gases are classified according to chemical and physical hazards. Before working with any compressed gas, make sure you know what’s in the cylinder and safe procedures for its use.
