Hazards


Inert gas can rapidly displace oxygen in
confined spaces, causing loss of
consciousness or death to anyone in those
areas.

Flammable gas can ignite and burn rapidly.

A compressed gas cylinder can become a
missile if the valve is damaged.

Compressed gas can cause a pipe or vessel to
explode.

When directed at a person, compressed gas
or oxygen can embed particles in eyes and
skin.



Precautions


Never take compressed gas cylinders into
vessels or confined spaces.

Always remove torches and hoses from
confined spaces when not in use.

Continuously and adequately, ventilate
confined spaces where inert welding gases are
used.

Ensure that dry-chemical powder (DCP) fire
extinguishers are readily available for fire
emergencies.

No smoking rules must be enforced near
places where compressed flammable gas is used
and stored.

Protect cylinders and hoses from sparks and
slag.

Never permit oil, grease, or other lubricants
to contact gas cylinders, valves, regulators,
hoses, or fittings.

Move and secure cylinders in an upright
position.









Never introduce compressed gas into a piping
system or vessel without specific instructions,
applicable written permits, and relief valves of
proper size.

Never use compressed gas or oxygen for
cleaning anything, including skin or clothing.

Oxygen cylinders will not be stored within
20 feet (6.1 meters) of combustible gas cylinders
or near any other substance where an accelerated
fire could result, unless protected by a wall at
least 5 feet (1.5 meters) high having a fire-
resistance rating of at least one hour.

Never use cylinders as rollers, supports or any
purpose other than to contain the contents as
received.

Never store any gas cylinders in any enclosed
space - including your tool containers.

Never drag or slid cylinders. Never drop
cylinders while handling.
