Compressed Gas Cylinder Safety Awareness
***This course is part of CORE Training Day 3.
The Compressed Gas Cylinder Safety Awareness training session discusses what a compressed gas is, what a cryogenic liquid is, how to handle and store a compressed gas, and what the hazards are of both compressed gases and cryogenic liquids.
Compressed gases are used in every aspect of our lives. They are used to keep our food cold, to anesthetize us for surgery, to provide oxygen to emphysema patients, to grill our food, to manufacture products, and to heat rooms. Compressed gases can be very safe, but if you do not handle, store, or use them properly, they can be deadly.
