Compressed Gas Cylinders - 2111449


In this training course workers learn how to safely work with or around compressed gas cylinders. When gas is compressed to fit into a cylinder a great amount of pressure is produced, creating a hazard if the cylinder should become damaged. Compressed gas cylinders may be dangerous if they leak and the gas is hazardous. A leaking cylinder also creates a fire hazard or explosion risk.

By taking the proper precautions and handling cylinders safely, accidents can be avoided. Topics covered in the course include an explanation of hazards, handling and storing cylinders, mechanisms and fittings and how to handle leaks. Use this training course to help your workers utilize safe work practices when working with compressed gas cylinders
