Laboratory Safety: Safe Handling of Compressed Gas Cylinders in the Laboratory

Working with compressed gases in a laboratory demands attention to detail and a high regard for safety in the workplace. This online training video explains the hazards associated with standard, liquid, dissolved and cryogenic compressed gases, the personal protective equipment (PPE) needed when handling these gasses, the best ways to securely store the cylinders, the cylinders’ shelf life, how to safely transport the compressed gas cylinders, how to position the cylinders in the work area, and the role of regulators and their controls in the laboratory.

This Video On Demand compressed gas safety training course covers installing regulators, testing for leaks, how pressure relief devices work and fire suppressors that prevent flashback fires in cylinders. Steps for responding to gas-related emergencies are addressed, along with the need to be familiar with the facility’s emergency plan.

Viewers will learn through following this compressed gas safety training video that they can work safely with compressed gases if they understand their properties and hazards, safely store and transport the compressed gas cylinders, ensure the proper regulator is used and it is installed correctly, and they are prepared to respond efficiently and correctly to emergencies.

Compressed gas cylinders are common in labs, and pose a significant hazard to workers as well as surrounding property. This educational and well-paced video holds viewers’ attention and impresses upon them the need to be mindful of the dangers associated with compressed gas cylinders.

This compressed gas cylinders safety training course has been updated to include GHS container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for GHS compliance.
