There is a strong commercial, educational and outreach opportunity for industrial gas distributors in running training for customers around the safe handling and storage of compressed gases.
That was the message from Abydee Moore, President and CEO of Butler Gas, the packaged gases specialist based in Pittsburgh, who presented at the first day of the PurityPlus Annual Meeting in San Antonio.
Butler Gas uses Compressed Gas Association (CGA) resources as the starting point for its safety training, said Moore. The CGA’s growing library of training modules, found on its website, includes the TM-1 unit on the safe handling and storage of compressed gases. Moore said that the e-learning modules can be used by engaged individuals for online training, but she said Butler Gas had found that there was clear value to its customers in running training sessions on the topic as laid out by the CGA.
“We offer a two-hour course and a one-hour course. The two-hour courses offer a combination of classroom and practical on-site activities and generally these are the ones that customers book,” said Moore. “These courses matter because we are expert in gas safety, customers expect us to be expert, and it is a chance to support safety protocols, share knowhow and drive engagement with safety as widely as possible. There is always value in as many individuals as possible knowing the safety protocols as well as possible.”
