What Makes You a Better Risk

Oxygen and acetylene tanks require extra special care in order to prevent potentially deadly hazards.  When in service (on the hand truck), they should be secured in an upright position and turned off when not being used.  When out of service (before they have been put in service or after they have been “emptied”), they should be chained in an upright position. The oxygen is to be separated from the acetylene by a distance of twenty feet or by a fireproof wall.

No matter where they are, tanks should always be tightly and carefully secured.  The picture above is one example of a best-case scenario that can occur when tanks are mishandled these tanks could have easily exploded killing the passenger and bystanders as well as destroying the vehicle and possibly the entire facility.
