CGA’s mission is to promote ever-improving safe, secure, and environmentally responsible manufacture, transportation, storage, transfilling, and disposal of industrial, medical, and food gases and their containers.

As we all start the new year, let’s make sure safety is our top business resolution.

These include the CGA P-1 Standard for Safe Handling of Compressed Gases in Containers, which provides detailed information on the proper handling and storage of compressed gas cylinders, and the CGA C-6 Standard for the Safe Transportation of Compressed Gases in Cylinders, which covers the transportation of compressed gases by ground and sea.
  • Safety bulletins and alerts: CGA regularly issues safety bulletins and alerts to provide information about potential hazards associated with compressed gases and to provide recommendations for preventing incidents.
  • Safety training and education programs: CGA offers a variety of safety training and education programs for individuals and organizations involved in the handling and use of compressed gases. These programs cover topics such as cylinder handling, transportation, and storage, and are designed to help individuals and organizations comply with regulations and industry standards.
