FOUNDATIONAL LEARNING
Using cylinders during work

Employers must:

  • Keep cylinders far enough away from the actual welding or cutting operation so that sparks, hot slag, or flame will not reach them. When this is impractical, fire-resistant shields must be provided.
  • Place cylinders where they cannot become part of an electrical circuit. Do not strike electrodes against a cylinder to strike an arc.
  • Place fuel gas cylinders with the valve end up whenever they are in use. Do not put them in a location where they would be subject to open flame, hot metal, or other sources of artificial heat.
