Compressed Gases
National Summary

This topic covers safety issues surrounding compressed gas cylinder use and storage. Compressed gases include acetylene, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrous oxide, liquid petroleum gas (LPG), propane, and compressed air. For information on aerosol cans, refer to the Flammables and Combustibles topic.

Numerous OSHA standards contain requirements for compressed gases. For example, 29 CFR 1910.101 directly addresses compressed gas safety, while standards for asbestos (29 CFR 1910.1001) and lead (29 CFR 1910.1025) do not permit the use of compressed air for cleaning contaminated surfaces.
