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.

To: Sent: Tuesday, May 01, 2007 10:19 AM Subject: Re: [DCHAS-L] Safe Handling Procedures 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. - Diane Amell, MNOSHA >>> Ralph Stuart 5/1/2007 6:58 AM >>> It appears that the ACS no longer distributes the video on compressed gas safety. Does anyone have suggestions to help this person? - Ralph From: ulab-seguritox**At_Symbol_Here**usb.ve Subject: Safe Handling Procedures Date: April 30, 2007 8:08:23 PM EDT 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, Helena TERUEL LEVITSKY Chairperson SEGURITOX Unidad de Laboratorios Universidad Simón Bolívar Caras, Venezuela
