National Safety Month Pledge

According to the International Labor Organization, a worker dies from a work-related accident or disease every 15 seconds. Common causes of workplace injuries include overexertion, slips and falls, and contact with equipment, often due to inadequate training, lack of safety gear, poor conditions, and fatigue. High-risk industries include construction, manufacturing, and transportation. In the U.S., these injuries and illnesses cost over $250 billion annually, impacting workers, families, and company productivity. For over 110 years, the Compressed Gas Association has promoted safe practices in handling gases.

Take the pledge below to show your commitment to safety.

“I pledge to prioritize safety when working with compressed gases by following all necessary precautions and guidelines to ensure the well-being of myself and those around me.

I will properly handle and store compressed gas cylinders and equipment, wear the appropriate personal protective equipment, and never use compressed gases or equipment in ways that are not intended.

I will educate myself on the potential hazards of compressed gases and stay informed about any updates to safety regulations.

I will encourage those around me to do the same.

By taking these measures, I commit to creating a safer environment for all those who work with or come in contact with compressed gases.”
