Are your colleagues and your labs


Get LGA’s 1-day intensive gas safety training

Length: 1 Day

Intended Audience:
Universities, Research Organisations, Petro-Chemical Companies, Food & Beverage Facilities, Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Contract Laboratories and anyone handling or near gas cylinders or gas lines.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have a thorough theoretical and practical understanding of:

  • Cylinder inherent safety risks
  • Gas material safety data sheets
  • Cylinder transport
  • Cylinder storage
  • Cylinder handling
  • Connecting high pressure regulators
  • High pressure regulator settings

Despite the dangers of high pressure gas cylinders, most laboratories that require specialised gases rely on staff and students who are not trained to use the equipment safely. Laboratory Gas Africa offers a 1-day practical training course to give users the skills to safely operate high pressure gas cylinders in a laboratory environment.

During the first half of the 1-day course (4 hours), theoretical training is provided, followed by an assessment for which the minimum pass mark is 90%. In the second half of the day, participants are taken through a 2-3 hour practical session covering the handling and storage of cylinders, as well as different connections and settings.
