From carbonating beverages to food packaging to medical treatments, pressurized gas touches nearly every part of our daily lives, whether we realize it or not. But keeping gases under pressure isn’t without highly dangerous and life-threatening risk. A lot can go sideways, and quickly, if proper safety protocols aren’t followed.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Respiratory Standard defines a life-threatening oxygen-deficient atmosphere as anything below 19.5 percent. An oxygen-deficient environment can very rapidly lead to hypoxia (the condition in which the brain and body organs and tissues are deprived of oxygen) and death – thus the extreme importance of having oxygen deficiency alarms in any enclosed environment storing compressed gasses or cryogenic liquids.
