I have a copy NFPA's Working Safetly with Compressed Gases that I use to 
train our new investigators. It pretty much follows the Compressed Gas 
Association (CGA) Pamphlet P-1. It's a great tape.
Prior to buying the video, I used the old CGC slide-and-tape show, which 
was also based on P-1. They have a video that covers the same info, 
although I haven't seen it. The reason I went with the NFPA video is that 
the state ADA policy requires that videos have either opened- or closed-cap
tioning and the CGA video is not captioned.

It appears that the ACS no longer distributes the video on compressed  
gas safety. Does anyone have suggestions to help this person?

Dear Sir
I am a Chemical Safety and Toxicology Professor at the Universidad  
Sim=F3n Bolivar in Caracas (Venezuela). These days we have realised  
that technicians and teacher are handling gas cylinder in an  
unappropiate way and we have had some incidents lately. I wonder  
whether it is possible to obtain any audiovisual material, like DVD,  
CD or video, related with Compressed Gases:Safe Handling Procedures
I would deeply appreciate any advice that ACS could give us in order  
to garantee a safer university to everyone.
Thanking you in advance for your kind attention and looking forward  
to hearing from you,

Chairperson SEGURITOX
