Compressed Gas Safety

The use, transportation, and storage of compressed gases present both physical and health hazards to persons, property, and the environment. Therefore, Kennesaw State University (KSU) has developed a Compressed Gas Policy and Procedures, which are consistent with the OSHA 29 CFR 1910.101 “compressed gas standards.” It is the policy of KSU, that only trained “Authorized Persons,” are assigned duties that involved the use, transportation, storage or inspection of compressed gases or its associated equipment. Compressed gas shall always be protected against damage, and exposure to high temperatures, and only stored in authorized locations.
