POD products are normally produced within one working day of the order being received, and are shipped immediately upon completion. Shipping is free on orders to the UK mainland. These publications are produced under licence by Dandy Booksellers and contain the same content as the HSE versions but, for copyright reasons, our own covers, which may differ from those illustrated.

HSG40 Safe handling of chlorine from drums and cylinders

HSG40 Safe handling of chlorine from drums and cylinders

Guidance on control measures for safe storage and use concerning receptacles of 33 kg to 73 kg capacity or drums of 33kg to 1 tonne volume.

Addressed primarily to managers of drum and cylinder installations but also relevant for plant supervisors, design and maintenance engineers and safety professionals. In addition to general health and safety management and risk assessment issues - such as maintenance, inspection, training needs, emergency procedures and protective equipment - the guidance also details the spectrum of pertinent specifics. Accordingly, subjects such as ventilation, chlorine detectors and alarms, pipework, corrosion, vaporisers, absorption systems, leakages and more are covered. An extensive study, it also explores broader issues such as toxicological properties and the characteristics of chlorine.

Features relevant legislative references.
