Compressed Gas Safety – Cal/OSHA
Compressed gas cylinders are designed to hold gases under extremely high pressures in a relatively small container. But this convenience also presents physical, explosive, toxic, corrosive and cryogenic dangers. This course should help employees learn how to identify the hazards of compressed gases and compressed gas cylinders, labeling and storage requirements for cylinders, and how to implement safe work practices. This course is intended for employees in California who use or work near compressed gases on a regular basis, and is designed to help employers meet the requirements of OSHA and Cal/OSHA’s compressed gas standards.
