Handling Cylinders

It is important to comply with current manual handling regulations. It is advisable when handling gas cylinders to ensure:

  • An appropriate size cylinder is used
  • Cylinders are not allowed to roll
  • Valves must not be tampered with and faulty valves must not be used
  • Markings and labels are never obscured.
  • Cylinders are stored near an exit so they can be removed easily in an emergency
  • Appropriate signage is on the storage area.
