Safe Usage of Gas Cylinders at GSI

Gas cylinders pose an incalculable danger if used incorrectly. It is therefore essential to follow the rules and regulations for storage and provision/use.

If you need help with this, please contact the  colleagues in the hazardous materials management department (gefahrstoffbeauftragter(at)


For the installation and use of gas cylinders, please refer to TRGS 745, for the storage of gas cylinders to TRGS 510. If flammable gases are involved, the rules on explosion protection from TRGS 720 et sec. must also be observed.

Specifications from other regulations remain unaffected.
