The Code of Practice covers UK legislation, containers, identification and marking, valves, handling and storage, transportation, emergency procedures and personnel training. Data sheets for 114 gases are included . An inexpensive wall chart summarises the important properties of 116 gases and volatile liquids . The Gas Data Book gives comprehensive details of handling techniques and cylinder equipment necessary for 120 gases , and the newer guide covers the design of gas systems, premises, cylinder handling and storage, and air-monitoring techniques for a range of gases . Another volume covers all aspects of handling gases in gas, liquid and solid states .
