If you are storing cylinders on your premises, it is not recommended that they are locked away, so that they can be accessed by first aiders if they are needed. That is in the case of doctor surgeries, dental surgeries, etcetera. So they should be readily available for any first aider to pick up and use. Do not store them with any other types of cylinders. So, if you have got other industrial cylinders or any other cylinders on site, such as gas cylinders or anything, store these completely separately. Do not store them in extremes of heat or near any naked flames or any oil and grease. They should be kept undercover, so they should not be left out in the elements. They should be kept clean and in good condition, ready to be used at any time. They should be stored appropriately, ideally in cupboards where they are kept clean or in specific cylinder bags where they can be kept clean. Signs of any damage should be reported to the supplier and the supplier will come out and swap the cylinder for a replacement cylinder.
