Requirements For Gas Cylinders in VehiclesNathan Cartwright
Workplace health and safety bodies in all states have recently published warnings regarding the safe storage of gas cylinders in response to a spate of incidents.
Workers have died or sustained serious injuries after their work vehicles exploded. These explosions occurred when gas from leaking portable gas cylinders ignited inside the vehicles. In many cases, the ignition source was the vehicle’s electrical system.
Flammable gas cylinders include those containing oxygen, acetylene, liquefied petroleum gas and propane or butane throwaway-style cylinders.
These incidents could have also killed or seriously injured members of the public.
