Handling Compressed Gas Cylinders in the Laboratory Interactive Training

Atlantic's Handling Compressed Gas Cylinders in the Laboratory video Program examines how gas cylinders work, the hazards that are associated with them and the need for caution when using or storing a cylinder. The energy possessed by a compressed gas cylinder can make it a virtual missile if it is not handled with the utmost care. And a leaking cylinder or fitting can lead to asphyxiation, a fire or even an explosion. Since compressed gas cylinders are frequently used in many laboratories, employees need to be familiar with the precautions that should be taken when dealing with them.

Topics covered in these products include:

  • The four ways to compress gases.
  • Hazards associated with compressed gases.
  • Proper storage procedures.
  • Marking and labeling.
  • Handling cylinders safely.
  • Connections and fittings.
  • Leak detection.
  • and more.
