Each year, several incidents are reported involving oxygen enrichment. Fires in oxygen enriched atmospheres start easily, are very intense and may result in serious injuries or fatalities.
This leaflet summarises the risks and hazards of oxygen enrichment, identifies common causes of enrichment and the precautions that should be taken. Other EIGA documents that will help to train staff and create safe systems of work when using oxygen are referenced.
It is part of the campaign materials developed by EIGA about the hazards of oxygen enrichment and has recently been updated.
