 en Oxygen Cylinders: "life" or "death"?
Gupta, Sanjay & Jani, C.B.


Oxygen is crucial to maintain and save human life. Other than medical purposes it is widely used for manufacture of mineral water, fabrication works and other industrial activities. If adequate precautionary measures are not adopted while handling, storage or transport of oxygen cylinder or container, accidental blast may claim human life and other damage as well. The case involving three victims is presented to highlight various relevant aspects i.e. autopsy findings, cause/s of blast and recommended precautions are discussed in the light of oxygen cylinder blast case in an "oxygen filling factory", claiming three human lives.

Oxygen cylinder, accidental blast, autopsy findings, causes and precautions.
