    any gas which is deliberately breathed or inadvertently released into a confined space such as a pub cellar can lead to death by asphyxiation Compressed or liquefied gas cylinders hold a vast amount of gas which once released is more than enough to displace the oxygen in even very large rooms Most inert gases have no odour or taste and victims will simply fall unconscious without warning There have been numerous sad examples of colleagues entering confined spaces to try to rescue victims of such asphyxiation only to also fall victim themselves Publicans in particular should read BCGA leaflet L10 available free to download from our website For those who have concerns that their cellar may be a potential death trap BCGA has published a Guidance Note GN9 which enables a simple calculation of the risk and recommends methods of mitigating it Using gas pressure to propel things There have been a number of examples of the contained pressure in industrial gas cylinders being misused and depicted as such on TV in very dangerous ways ヨ e g smashing with such as a lump hammer the valves off cylinders of compressed CO 2 or nitrogen and letting the cylinders themselves be propelled through the air or doing the same with cylinders strapped to improvised vehicles shopping trolleys go carts etc has been depicted as great fun But people have little understanding of the hazards of releasing contained gas pressure suddenly in this way The pressure in a car tyre can be sufficient to cause death industrial gas cylinders contain typically a hundred times this pressure If the pressure release causes 80 kg plus of gas cylinder to fly about the consequences can be dire In summary Industrial gases have wide use in a number of industry sectors and are invaluable in their correct use But untrained persons particularly youngsters should not mess with gas cylinders Personal insurance will not pay in cases of recklessness such as those highlighted in this leaflet The media should adhere to their own codes of practice and stop depicting industrial gas cylinders in irresponsible ways For more information Please click here to download this free leaflet www bcga co uk ISSN 0260 4809 RoSPA Approval for Gas Safe Workshops 10th October 2012 12 00 am One of the key considerations for any organisation wishing to undertake safety training will be How do we know that the material being delivered by the training provider is technically correct It is vital that training providers are able to give the market assurances that their training materials have been independently evaluated and approved backed up by detailed lesson plans and tutor s notes and delivered by Industry Professionals We are proud to announce that all training materials contained within our Industrial Gases Laboratory Gases and Cryogenic Liquids workshops are now RoSPA Approved This approval provides organisations with the necessary assurances that the training they receive from Gas Safe has been independently audited and approved by the UK s major
