Liquefied-Industrial-Gas Safety

Many industrial gases are transported, stored and used in liquid form, a situation that poses significant health and safety risks. This one-page reference highlights good safety practices for preventing personnel injury when working with cryogenic fluids. High-purity industrial gases, including nitrogen, oxygen, helium, argon and other noble gases, are commonly generated by air-separation units (ASUs)... More
