What is Cylinder Inspection and Why it is IMPORTANT0
Ninety percent of cylinder accidents occur at the fill station during fills. Unfortunately the reality is these accidents happen to frequently and cause not only damage but injury and even death.
And without formal, recognized training, you are also exposed to potential issues with liability and safety. Do your employees know what they should look for in order to fill those cylinders?
There is a simple inexpensive way to protect your business and your employees, Cylinder Inspection Training.
Visual inspection is a necessary process in order to determine a cylinder’s suitability for continued service. However, it constitutes more than looking into a cylinder and pronouncing it “good to go”. Knowing what makes a cylinder “good” and what makes it “bad” is why cylinder inspection training is important. And contrary to popular belief, there are laws concerning cylinder handling and visual inspection as well as eddy current application!
Training is very important in order to perform high quality visual inspections on high pressure cylinders. Visual inspections for SCUBA cylinders are required annually and other cylinders may require inspections at different intervals.
There are specific federal requirements, CGA rules and manufacturer guidelines that govern visual inspection of high pressure cylinders. Do the people in your tech shop know what they are?
The PSI-PCI Visual Cylinder Inspection program is the original visual inspection training based on the rules and regulations pertaining to cylinder hazmat. For over 30 years we have been the gold standard for visual cylinder inspection training and the only training available recognized by the USDOT, Compressed Gas Association and cylinder manufacturers. The professional choice is clear! No one else can provide you with the depth of expertise and experience, professional consultation and level of support that PSI-PCI does.
