Gas cylinders are used every day in many businesses. But how do you ensure safe handling, for example when changing cylinders? And how can gas cylinders be transported properly? We present some important safety measures and regulations.
Storing highly flammable substances - 8 important checks
When storing flammable substances on your site it is important to ensure you have them secured and in a safe location. This includes having the proper safety precautions in place.
The dangerous substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations 2002 (DSEAR) require risks from the indoor storage of dangerous substances to be controlled by elimination or by reducing the quantities of such substances in the workplace to a minimum.
Do you use lithium-ion batteries in your business? If you do it is important to ensure that you store them safely. The correct storage means better protection from thermal runaway, fire, and toxic gas emissions. Your storage should maintain a constant temperature, protect against moisture, offer safe charging, and protect against mechanical damage.

What risks are posed by gas cylinders?
Gas cylinders can be a significant hazard if handled improperly. The most common causes of accidents involving gas cylinders include:
Tearing off the valve
Since the valve is the weakest point of a gas cylinder, its protection with a valve protection cap is an absolute must. If a gas cylinder is damaged by tearing off the valve so that its pressurized content escapes abruptly, it can turn into a veritable projectile and thus penetrate concrete walls.
