I am wondering whether other academic Chemical Hygiene Officers/EHS employees/etc purchase CGA publications other than the "Safe Handling of Compressed Gases in Containers" (P-1), which is cited in the OSHA Compressed Gas standard.
In particular, publications which (on the surface) appear they might be applicable to labs are "P-9: The Inert Gases Nitrogen, Helium, Argon", and "P-12: Safe Handling of Cryogenic Liquids" or "P-30: Portable Liquid Nitrogen Containers"
Like numerous standards that come from 'non-governmental consortia' these are expensive; unlike NFPA and some others, it doesn't appear there is 'read only' access on the web. I hesitate to purchase them due to cost, but if others have found them helpful, I'll bite the bullet..
Many thanks for your comments!
