Before attaching the regulator, wipe clean the valve outlet with a clean cloth free of oil and lint and "crack" a secured cylinder by opening the valve slightly then closing it immediately to blow out dust or dirt from the valve outlet. Use two hands on the valve and stand at the side of the valve - never stand directly in front of or behind the valve outlet.
Do not crack fuel gas cylinders due to the chance for the gas to ignite by friction, heating, or other ignition sources. Never crack hydrogen cylinders since the release of compressed hydrogen may ignite by itself.
Add a badge to your website or intranet so your workers can quickly find answers to their health and safety questions.
