Risks, Safety and Design – Fire and Pressurised Gas Cylinders

There is a complex relationship between pressurised gas cylinders and fire. On the one hand, pressurised oxygen can pose a real fire risk, and home users of medical oxygen need to be aware of the hazard, and take steps to minimise risk. On the other hand, pressurised breathing air is essential to firefighters in their [...]
