  • 1. Compressed Gas Cylinders Page 1 of 10 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST021 Revision 2013 1.0 This pack contains: • 7 - Page Talk Text • 8 - OHP Presentation Slide Pack Using the talks (Extract “How to Present Safety Talks”): Plan which topic you want to discuss with your team. Read through the script before you hold the meeting to familiarise yourself with the material. Start the talk with a comment that makes the topic relevant to the team. For example, if you have seen a number of people using ladders incorrectly, use this as your opening comment. Follow the script but don’t read straight from the page. The script is only a prompt and it will sound better if you use your own words. Ask the questions as they appear in the script. It is important you do this because they are a lead in to the next section of your talk. Give the team enough time to answer the questions. Safety talks can be boring for the team if you are the only one talking. Hand out the information sheets as they appear in the script. Don’t hand out all the information sheets at the start of the talk otherwise there is a temptation for the team to read ahead and not listen to the points you are making. Collect the information sheets at the end of the talk so they can be used again.

  • 3. Compressed Gas Cylinders Page 7 of 10 © PA Services Group - SMARTsafe 2013 Document Number: ST021 Revision 2013 1.0 MANUAL HANDLING OF COMPRESSED GAS CYLINDERS Cylinders that are in use should be kept and moved in purpose built trolleys. They must be secured in the trolley with a steel clamp or chain. “What are the safety precautions you should take when manually handling compressed gas cylinders?” Hand out sheet 6 – Manual handling of cylinders When manual handling cylinders, your hands should be free from grit, grease and oil to prevent: the cylinders from slipping; and grit or oil getting into the cylinder valve. If it is necessary to move a cylinder which is not in a trolley, you must make sure the: cylinder valve is fully closed; and regulators and hoses are disconnected. Never: roll or drag cylinders along the ground; drop cylinders onto the ground; or smoke while handling compressed gas cylinders. RAISING AND LOWERING CYLINDERS WITH A CRANE Specially constructed cages must be used when lifting, lowering, or moving cylinders with a crane. Cylinders must be secured in the cage, with steel chains or clamps, at all times to prevent excessive movement. Hand out sheet 7 – Raising and lowering compressed gas cylinders with a crane You should never: attempt to lift or lower cylinders by attaching chain, wire rope or flat web slings around the cylinder; or use the cylinder valve as an attachment point for lifting a cylinder - they are not designed to withstand this type of stress. Directly attaching a sling to a compressed gas cylinder is a highly dangerous work practice. The cylinder can easily slip through the sling and fall to the ground. This document is a partial preview.
