Now that summer is officially over, and you’re thinking about picking up a few gas cylinders for your workplace or home heating, take a second to recognise the safety issues.
The Queensland branch of Workplace safety and health has issued an alert on the dangers of transporting gas cylinders in enclosed vehicles, and the horrific ramifications of what can go wrong.
As we know we should not leave a child or animal in a hot car, the same applies for a gas cylinder. The temperature in vehicles can quickly rise to a level where it poses a significant risk to any flammable or non-flammable gasses that may be in the vehicle. An increase in temperature = an increase in pressure within the gas cylinder, which can cause the cylinder to leak, and safety valves to be rendered ineffective or release, and this spells disaster.
Please think before you act. Safety first. For more questions, queries or more information on gas cylinder safety contact us today.
