Oxy/Fuel Gas Equipment Testing

Keep your Oxy/Fuel gas equipment safe with regular inspections

Oxy/Fuel gas equipment is widely used for welding, cutting, heating, straightening, and descaling. It’s versatility and cost-efficiency make it popular on many sites - but it can be dangerous if it doesn’t work properly.

Every year, people are hurt because of incorrectly used and/or poorly maintained oxy/fuel gas equipment. Explosions, fire, fumes and impact injuries during cylinder transportation are just some of the hazards that put people - and property - at risk.

The Regulations state that oxy/gas fuel equipment is inspected at yearly intervals to make sure it is compliant and operates safely and efficiently.

A competent person with full knowledge of Oxy/Fuel systems must complete the inspection
