  • Welding and flame cutting is done in designated areas or you must follow the hot work permit system
  • Fuel gas cylinders must be separated from oxygen by 20 feet or by a fire proof barrier when in storage. Cylinder caps must also be on cylinders in storage and the cylinders must be restrained from falling
  • Cylinder valves must be closed and regulators bled down when not in use. Also, coil torch hoses to prevent damage
  • Oxygen can greatly increase the burning rate of anything burnable: use extreme caution when working with it
  • Only trained and authorized personnel are permitted to use torches and welding equipment
