Linde North America has created a series of videos on safe handling and use of gases including oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen. The videos are available on DVD for customers or for download on company's website. They are also viewable on Linde’s YouTube channel.

Entitled “Taking The Lead In Safety” series, the videos were shot in high definition at several Linde and customer locations in the Los Angeles and San Francisco areas. Each of the videos covers safety guidelines in working with the gases, including basic properties and behavior and how they are piped and stored for use.

The videos also cover safety concerns such as prevention of low temperature burns from cryogenic products, the potential dangers of oxygen enriched atmospheres and how to avoid oxygen deficiency when working with nitrogen, carbon dioxide and hydrogen.
