All users of cryogenic gases and liquids need to be fully aware of the associated risks and how to use cryogens safely. 

OHS offers a short training course tailored to anyone using, handling or storing cryogenic liquids. Users will be thought of the hazards of cryogenic liquids so that they can identify risks and adopt safe working practices.
Topics covered include:

  • cryogenic fluids and their hazards 
  • equipment failure and accidents,
  • how to protect yourself.
For this particular session we will also have a contribution from Dr Richard Gaal, EPFL LHe liquifaction center, to talk about:
  • why we use cryogenic liquids
  • physical properties leading to hazardous situations
  • technical aspects of storing and handling lliquid Nitrogen and similar liquids (dewar handling, avoiding accidental pressurisation, not mixing different cryogens etc)
  • specificities of liquid Helium dewars
