In 1995, the ACS Education department published two books, both by George 
Whitmyre -- Compressed Gases, Safe Handling Procedures, and compressed Gases

, Compressed Hazards.  Both had videos to go along with the books.

So__contact the Education department of the ACS and ask them for information

about the current availability of that material.

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-captioning 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
Simón 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
