Do’s and Don’ts in a Van Gas Bottle Storage
Here are a few quick do’s and don’ts to keep in mind when handling gas bottles to ensure your safety in your daily work.

- Ensure your van gas bottle storage has a solid base made of fireproof material.
- Make sure the gas bottles are stored away from heat and ignition.
- Secure the gas bottle using regulators, valves, tubing, protective caps, and compatible hookups.

- Close the cylinder valve even if the cylinder is empty.
- Place the gas bottle in a well-ventilated area of the vehicle.
- Make sure the van gas bottle storage is easy to access and inspect.
- Know the hazards and dangers of gas.
- Store van gas bottles upside-down as this may damage the cylinder, especially the valve stem.
- Have any loose gas bottles in the cargo; instead, secure it with a van gas bottle holder.
- Use any source of ignition ner the gas bottles, for example smoking.
- Let the gas bottle stand upside down or lay down.
