Safe Handling of Compressed Gas Cylinders program deals with the safe handling of gas cylinders and explains the various types of gases and their uses. The vast majority of gases used for industrial uses such as welding and cutting are purchased in cylinders. These cylinders must be constructed and maintained in accordance with the Department of Transportation's regulations. All cylinders must bear the DOT, Interstate Commerce Commission or ICC specifications. Oxygen, Acetylene and Liquefied Petroleum are some of the gases stored in cylinders. Cylinders must be marked with large lettering indicating the contents. Acetylene burned with oxygen can produce a higher flame temperature. Liquefied petroleum gas is composed of hydrocarbons such as propane. LPG is quite flammable and must be handled with care. Serious accidents can occur if compressed gas cylinders are mishandled. It is important to follow the company policies and procedures on safe handling of gases.
