EXTRACTION GAS SAFETY POSTERS

FLAMMABLE GAS SAFETY

COMPRESSED GAS SAFETY

DRY ICE SAFETY

CRYOGENIC GAS SAFETY

CARBON DIOXIDE GAS SAFETY

In recent years, we have seen a growing number of our industry’s products used in new applications, including in extraction growing and processing facilities. In 2020, the extraction industry was identified as an area of focus for our growing end user safety communications. Due to this industry’s rapid expansion, regulation and comprehensive standards programs have not yet fully caught up. In discussions with extraction association staff and operators, we began to hear a common theme emerge – that many weren’t sure where to find more information on gases, related equipment, and their safe use. Solvent Direct decided to help fill that gap. These facilities use a broad range of gases and equipment, and our objective was to provide a series of visually engaging safety posters with high level safety information to help extraction industry personnel understand the potential hazards and how to mitigate them by following best practices. Solvent Direct staff engaged in conversations with representatives from the National C Industry Association (NCIA) to better understand how our industry’s products are used in these operations and identify the areas where education was needed. We also worked with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) to learn more about their standards activity on this topic and how they built relationships with extraction facility operators to drive awareness and acceptance of safety messages. As we delved into this industry, Solvent Direct’s Hazard Communication Committee identified four key areas that presented an immediate need for education and safe handling information: carbon dioxide, cryogenic and refrigerated liquids, flammable gases, and cylinders and equipment. For each topic, we have now published a safety poster and a related product-specific webpage, or “Safety Resource Center,” which includes a free download of the poster, along with additional information and resources. Each poster is fully scalable, allowing users to print in multiple sizes. Companies can also add their own contact information and branding to the posters, before distributing. In addition, the posters include a QR code, enabling viewers to quickly access supplementary information on-demand. These resources are available at no charge, and may be accessed without having to first create a user account on the Solvent Direct SD-360 portal.
