It's a gas!

There are several large tanks of compressed gas in the storage room here at work. Argon, carbon dioxide, Freon, acetylene, and oxygen.

If you ask me, storing oxygen and acetylene together is just asking for trouble.

Aren't there some kind of regulations on how this stuff is supposed to be stored? The tanks are just stacked in a corner; they're not tied down or anything.

They are supposed to be on the opposite side of the building (or at least in seperate rooms), not together. Also supposed to be caged or strapped standing upright.

Dan says call OSHA. (He welds.)

I brought the situation up to the company executives, and one of them stated, "If OSHA ever did an inspection here, they'd kick our asses."

Great....

Then the other question could be a call to the local fire department, not to report them but to simply ask the safest way to store them, they would know.

They'd rather give that information and save lives, I would think.
