GAS CYLINDERS

  1. No more than one extra cylinder of compressed, flammable gas (other than those actually connected for use) should be stored at any one workstation.

  2. All compressed gas cylinders must be secured to prevent accidental falling and damage to the valve or regulator.

  3. Only non-flammable gas cylinders are currently used in LP; if flammable gas cylinders are used in the future, the flammable gas cylinders must be stored in a separate, ventilated room or enclosure, reserved exclusively for that purpose, and which has a fire‑resistance classification of at least two hours.
