In many industrial sectors gases under pressure are manufactured, stored, transported, handled and used in various types. This leads to different hazards caused by the special properties of the given substance class in particular its physical property of the increased pressure. Furthermore the health of employees can be endangered for example by the hazards of toxic gases, by working under overpressure or by oxygen deficiency.
In order to assess these hazards properly and to define the adequate safeguards, an extensive risk analysis is required. Also, important conclusions for prevention can be derived from accidents and near misses.
At this workshop the current legal requirements, their practical application as well as new aspects of safety engineering will be presented.
