The Importance of Mobile Oxy/Acetylene Safety Cabinets in Transporting Dangerous Goods

September 19, 2019

In Victoria, Australia, a person is prohibited from transporting compressed or dissolved acetylene in cylinders inside a vehicle cabin according to the Dangerous Goods Act of 1986. Since this substance is highly flammable, it is classified as 2.1 as specified in the Dangerous Goods (Prescribed List) Regulation of 1986. The authorities consider that transporting this hazardous substance in enclosed vans, cars and other types of vehicles due to the fact that even minor leaks can cause an explosion or a fire to occur. The regulation 411(1) in the Dangerous (Transport) Regulation of 1987 dictates that an individual should not transport a cylinder containing dangerous substances of classes 2.1 or 2.3, or liquefied oxygen in an enclosed vehicle compartment or an enclosed vehicle. However, regulation 411(2) (c) waves this prohibition if the person transports the cylinder in an approved safety cabinet. This is where the mobile oxy/acetylene safety cabinet from our company, Jonda PTY LTD, comes into this discussion since it has been fully safety tested and complies with the requirements of regulation 411 (2) (c).
