Potential Hazards

Fire or Explosion

  • Extremely Flammable
  • Will be easily ignited by heat, sparks, or flames.
  • Will form explosive mixtures with air.
  • Vapors from liquified gas are initially heavier than air, spread along ground and may travel to source of ignition and flash back.

Caution: Hydrogen (UN1049), Deuterium (UN1957), Hydrogen, refrigerated liquid (UN1966), and Methane (UN1971) are lighter than air and will rise. Hydrogen and Deuterium fires are difficult to detect since they burn with an invisible flame. Use an alternate method of detection (thermal camera, broom handle, etc.).

  • Cylinders exposed to fire may vent and release flammable gas through pressure relief devices.
  • Containers may explode when heated.
  • Ruptured cylinders may rocket.

Health

  • Vapors may cause dizziness or asphyxiation without warning.
  • Some may be irritating if inhaled at high concentrations.
  • Contact with gas or liquified gas may cause burns, severe injury and/or frostbite.
  • Fire may produce irritating and/or toxic gases.

Public Safety

  • Isolate spill or leak area immediately for at least 100 meters (330 feet) in all directions.
  • Keep unauthorized personnel away.
  • Stay upwind.
  • Many gases are heavier than air and will spread along ground and collect in low or confined areas (sewers, basements, tanks).
  • Keep out of low areas.

Protective Clothing

  • Wear positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).
  • Structural firefighters’ protective clothing will only provide limited protection.
  • Always wear thermal protective clothing when handling refrigerated/cryogenic liquids.

Evacuation

Large Spill – Consider initial downwind evacuation for at least 800 meters (1/2 mile).

Fire – If tank, rail car or tank truck is involved in a fire, ISOLATE for 1600 meters (1 mile) in all directions, also, consider initial evacuation for 1600 meters (1 mile) in all directions.

Emergency Response

Fire-Do Not extinguish a leaking gas fire unless leak can be stopped.

Caution: Hydrogen (UN1049), Deuterium (UN1957) and Hydrogen, refrigerated liquid (UN1966) burn with an invisible flame. Hydrogen and Methane mixture, compressed (UN2034) may burn with an invisible flame.

  • Withdraw immediately in case of rising sound from venting safety devices or discoloration of tank.
  • ALWAYS stay away from the ends of the tank.
  • For massive fire, use unmanned hose holders or monitor nozzles: if this is impossible, withdraw from area and let fire burn.

Spill or Leak

  • ELIMINATE all ignition sources (no smoking, flares, sparks or flames in immediate area).
  • All equipment used when handling the product must be grounded.
  • Stop leak if you can do it without risk and, if possible, turn leaking containers so that gas escapes rather than liquid.
  • Use water spray to reduce vapors or divert vapor cloud drift. Avoid allowing water runoff to contact spilled material.
  • Do not direct water at spill or source of leak.
  • Prevent spreading of vapors through sewers, ventilation systems and confined areas.
  • Isolate area until gas has dispersed.

CAUTION: When in contact with refrigerated/cryogenic liquids, many materials become brittle and are likely to break without warning.

First Aid

  • Move victim to fresh air.
  • Call 911 or emergency medical services.
  • Give artificial respiration if victim is not breathing.
  • Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult.
  • Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes.
  • In case of contact with liquefied gas, thaw frosted parts with lukewarm water.
  • Clothing frozen to the skin should be thawed before being removed.
  • In case of burns, immediately cool affected skin for as long as possible with cold water. Do not remove clothing if adhering to skin.
  • Keep victim warm and quiet.
  • Ensure that medical personnel are aware of the material(s) involved and take precautions to protect themselves.#Top
