An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Mining- Surface Coal Welding and Cutting Program


      This chapter contains guidelines and requirements for the safe use of flammable and/or compressed gases.  It covers the use of flammable-gas piping systems, high-pressure gas cylinders, manifolded cylinders, and compressed air.  Cutters, welders and their supervisors must be suitably trained in the safe operations of their equipment and the safe use of the process. 


      All gases must be used in a manner that will not endanger personnel or property in routine shop use or experimental operations.  In areas where mining operations are or have taken place, methane gas may be present.  Therefore, before welding, cutting, or soldering is performed in areas likely to contain methane, an examination for methane shall be made by a qualified person with a device approved by the Secretary for detecting methane. Examinations for methane shall be made immediately before and periodically during welding, cutting, or soldering.  [1]  Welding, cutting, or soldering work shall not be permitted to commence or continue in air which contains 1.0 volume per centum or more of methane.  [2] 

 Other common hazards associated with handling and use of flammable and/or high-pressure gases include the following: 

      Injuries caused by flying objects accelerated by an explosion or pressure release:


      Secondary accidents such as falls or electrical shocks:

      Fire caused by ignition of flammable gases:
