Compressed Gas Cylinders

Pressurized containers of compressed gas cause around 5,000 injuries each year in the U.S.

Compressed gas cylinders can be extremely hazardous, not only because of the contents of the cylinders, but because of the pressure of the gases within the cylinders, so there is a dual concern. Developed by Vivid’s Chief Safety Officer Jill James, a former OSHA inspector, this series examines real hazards in real work environments. This safety tip video explains ways to stay safe while working with compressed gas cylinders.
