Norwell, MA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

Clean Harbors, North America’s leading provider of environmental, energy and industrial services, has published a management briefing on compressed gas cylinder management. Authored by Ed Isom, CHMM, CPEA, CET, Clean Harbors Director, High-Hazard Services and entitled “Gas Cylinders Pose Unique Risks: Cylinder Lifecycle Management Requires a Formal Program,” the article discusses the specific risks and the means to effectively control gas cylinders through their entire lifecycles.

Part of Clean Harbors’ information series for companies that handle and/or generate hazardous materials, the management briefing is available on demand at: http://www.cleanharbors.com/cylinder4.

The briefing examines the challenges that must be met to effectively inventory, store, use and dispose of gas cylinders. It also discusses special handling procedures for gases that require stabilization and stabilization renewals, and presents specific examples of gases that require special handling. The briefing goes on to comment on the inverse nature of gas cylinder costs – namely, that it often costs more to dispose of gases than it does to purchase the material. Finally, the briefing offers a program to help ensure effective gas cylinder lifecycle management by assigning responsible managers and staff, and using barcode tracking.
