Dear Mr. Graham:
This is in response to your letter addressed to me regarding the proper handling of compressed gas cylinders and particularly with reference to the moving of cylinders from place to place by means of rolling the cylinder on its lower edge.
Your general question may be answered by the publication C.G.A. P-1-1984, Safe Handling of Compressed Gases In Containers. (copy enclosed). An answer to your specific question will be found in subsection 3.4.1, on page 8 of the above mentioned publication.
Since Safe Handling of Compressed Gases (C.G.A. P-1 1984) has been adopted by reference into 29 CFR 1910.101 of OSHA's General Industry Standards, the position of the Compressed Gas Association against moving compressed gas cylinders by rolling them would also be OSHA's position on this subject.
I hope the above will be of help to you, but should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact this office.
Patricia K. Clark
