Gas Safety in Industrial Environments

Our Industrial Gases Safety Awareness Workshops are designed to meet the needs of users of cylinder gases in industrial environments. They give participants a firm understanding of the key safety issues associated with the handling, storage and use of industrial gases. The workshops develop risk awareness through the identification of hazards found in everyday situations. Participants will learn about the gas safety issues relative to their specific roles, together with the steps required to maintain safe working conditions.

An understanding of hazards and the ability to assess risks within industry is vital in todays Health and Safety conscious workplace. These workshops help to develop these critical skills, as well as helping staff to improve their knowledge and awareness of the compressed gases used within their particular working environment.

  • Industrial Gases

    This training workshop is designed for all personnel who are involved in the use, handling or storage of industrial compressed gas cylinders. It is our most popular training workshop.

    It can form the foundation for two related practical workshops, or be run in isolation.
  • Industrial Gases (Including Piped Systems)

    This training workshop is designed for all personnel who are involved in the use, handling or storage of industrial compressed gas cylinders and who also have at least one fixed gas piped system on site.

    It can form the foundation for a number of related practical workshops, or can be run in isolation.
  • Acetylene Safety Training

    Oxy-fuel Gas Systems Set-up & Pre-use Check Practical

    This workshop gives participants the opportunity to further their learning by practising the safe set-up, leak test and shut-down of an oxy-fuel gas system in a practical environment.

    It can only be attended by delegates who have completed Safety Awareness Training; it cannot be run in isolation.
  • Oxy-fuel Gas Systems Inspection Practical

    This workshop gives participants the opportunity to further their learning by practising the safe set-up, leak test and shut-down of an oxy-fuel gas system in a practical environment. They will also learn how to conduct formal inspections of oxy-fuel gas equipment in accordance with the requirements of British Compressed Gases Association Code of Practice 7 (BCGA CP7).

    This workshop can only be attended by delegates who have completed Safety Awareness Training; it cannot be run in isolation.
  • Using Industrial Gases Safely

    This workshop combines gas safety awareness with practical training to provide all the essential information that gas users require in a concise half-day package.

    The workshop includes a demonstration on how to correctly connect a regulator and hose assembly to a gas cylinder. It has been developed for all personnel who use, handle or store industrial gases.
  • Using Oxy-fuel Gases Safely

    This workshop combines gas safety awareness with practical training to provide all the essential information that gas users require in a concise half-day package.

    The workshop includes a demonstration on how to correctly assemble an oxy-fuel gas workstation. It has been developed for all personnel who use, handle or store oxy-fuel gases.
  • Hot Work

    This training workshop is designed to deliver all the essential safety information that personnel who undertake hot work, or are responsible for issuing Hot Work Permits, require.

    It contains both theory and practical elements.
  • Propane Training / LPG Training

    A concise LPG training workshop designed for anyone who uses LPG / Propane in an industrial environment. It is a similar to the Industrial Gases workshop, but adapted to focus on the properties, hazards and risks associated with Liquefied Petroleum Gases.

    This workshop can form the foundation for an associated practical workshop, or be run in isolation.
  • Connecting Propane Regulators & Cylinder Set-up Practical

    This 2 hour workshop gives participants the opportunity to practice the safe set-up and leak test of propane cylinders in a practical environment.

    It can only be attended by delegates who have completed Safety Awareness Training; it cannot be run in isolation.
  • Quarries & Mines

    Gas cylinders and associated equipment used in the quarrying and mining industries often suffer from accelerated wear and damage due to the harsh environments present.

    We provide gas safety training specifically tailored to these industries.
  • Welding / Shielding Gases

    A training workshop specfically designed for personnel who use industrial gases for either MIG (GMAW) or TIG (GTAW) welding. It is similar to the Industrial Gases Safety Awareness workshop, but adapted to focus on the properties, hazards and risks associated with the gases used in these processes.

    This workshop can form the foundation for an associated practical workshop, or be run in isolation.
  • Shrink Fitting

    This workshop is designed for anyone who uses liquid nitrogen for shrink fitting purposes.

    It contains both theory and practical elements.
  • Industrial Gases for Refrigeration Engineers

    A training workshop designed for anyone using, handling, storing or transporting industrial gas cylinders such as oxygen, acetylene or propane in the refrigeration industry. The workshop focuses on the properties, hazards and risks associated with the industrial gases used by refrigeration engineers.

    This workshop can form the foundation for a number of associated practical workshops, or be run in isolation.
  • Gas Safety at Waste Disposal & Recycling Sites – Managers

    The safe identification, storage and control of gas cylinders received at waste disposal and recycling sites can be an issue if Managers and their staff are unaware of the risks and dangers present.

    This workshop provides all the information that Managers and Supervisors require to ensure their staff handle gas cylinders in a safe manner.
  • Gas Safety at Waste Disposal & Recycling Sites – Operators

    The safe identification, storage and control of gas cylinders received at waste disposal and recycling sites can be an issue if staff are unaware of the risks and dangers present.

    This training workshop is a shorter version of the the Managers workshop shown above. It provides all the information that staff / operators require to ensure they handle gas cylinders in a safe manner.
  • Safe Manual Handling of Gas Cylinders

    Many staff do not use compressed gases themselves, but have responsibilites for their movement around site. They should therefore know how to move them in a safe manner and appreciate the hazards of the cylinders they are moving.

    This workshop contains both theory and practical elements and provides all the essential safety information that staff require to ensure that cylinders are handled safely.
  • Safe Storage & Handling of Gas Cylinders

    Many staff do not use compressed gases themselves, but have responsibilites for their storage and movement around site. They should therefore know how to store and move the cylinders correctly.

    This workshop contains both theory and practical elements and provides all the essential safety information that staff require to ensure that cylinders are stored safely.
  • Gas Equipment Inspectors Training

    By combining online study and practical hands-on training, this cost effective course enables delegates to conduct full safety checks on gas cylinders and associated equipment, including oxy-fuel workstations.
  • Compressed Gas Safety Training

    Compressed Gases Safety Awareness Training for Local Authority Inspectors
