In today's work environments, compressed gas is used in many fields during assembly or repair, such as refrigeration, welding, and heating, just to name a few. Industrial compressed gas can be extremely dangerous and possibly deadly. OSHA mandates that all employees that handle and use compressed gas receive Compressed Air Safety training annually. Our "Compressed Gas Cylinders Safety" training products provide the information employees need to handle and transport these potentially volatile storage containers. Topics covered in these products include: Associated hazards, Moving and transporting cylinders safely, Positioning cylinders properly, Proper "hook-up" procedures, Safe storage practices, personal protection equipment (PPE), Canister labels and the labeling process, Storage "incompatibilities", and more.
OSHA's Position On Compressed Gas Training
Compressed gas is utilized in a number of different jobs and in a number of different environments. However, compressed gas that is used in industrial environments can cause serious injury and even fatalities if certain precautions are not taken. This is why OSHA has instituted a number of mandatory regulations when it comes mitigating the three major compressed air dangers of; skin penetration leading to Hemorrhaging and pain, flying debris and high noise level hearing damage. In addition, there are also a number of OSHA mandatory regulations that cover the correct use, transportation and storage of compressed gas cylinders. The topics that are covered by our high quality videos and other training tools include;
- Types of compressed gas cylinders
- Valves and pressure release devices (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.252(a)(2)(i)(d))
- Labelling of compressed air cylinders
- Transporting compressed air cylinders (OSHA 1926.350(a)(4) and (9))
- Avoiding compressed air accidents (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.242(b))
- Storage requirements for both full and empty cylinders (OSHA 29 CFR 1910.101)
- Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Detecting Leaks and managing leaks
In addition to our OSHA-oriented compressed air training videos, we also provide additional compressed air training tools in the form of; a CD-ROM Format training course, Posters and booklets, along with additional tools that can come bundled with our training packages. These comprehensive videos and tools will allow you to train new employees at the company’s convenience or refresh the training of current employees.
