Drivers, respiratory therapists, warehouse personnel, and others who handle compressed gas cylinders should do so using the proper equipment to ensure safe movement of the cylinders. Compressed gas cylinders are pressure vessels that are capable of becoming propelled objects if the contents are suddenly exhausted, either by mishap or accident. The rapid discharge of gas can happen if the cylinders are dropped and either the valve or other part of the cylinder becomes damaged or broken. If a damaged cylinder with gas inside of it becomes a propelled object, it can cause property damage, injury, or worse. To prevent cylinders from being damaged, use carriers, bags, or carts when handling and moving cylinders, particularly multiple cylinders. Do not try to carry a large number of cylinders under your arms. One wrong move or trip can result in the cylinders being dropped and potentially damaged. Carriers can be constructed of several types of materials. The durability of the carrier is
