Health & Safety

At Ace Gases, safety is our top priority, and we strive to maintain a strong safety culture in the workplace. We believe that everyone has the right to a safe and healthy work environment.

To ensure the highest level of safety, we have implemented several measures. Firstly, we have established comprehensive safety policies and procedures that comply with industry standards and regulations. These guidelines cover all aspects of our operations, from equipment handling to emergency response protocols.

We also prioritize safety training and education for all employees. Regular training sessions are conducted to enhance awareness and knowledge of safety practices. This includes training on proper handling of hazardous materials, emergency preparedness, and the use of personal protective equipment.

Additionally, we encourage a culture of safety through open communication and feedback. We actively promote a reporting system where employees can report safety concerns, near misses, or potential hazards. This allows us to address issues promptly and make continuous improvements to our safety measures.

Furthermore, we regularly conduct safety audits and inspections to identify any potential risks or hazards. This proactive approach enables us to take preventive measures and maintain a safe working environment.

By emphasizing safety at all levels of our organization, we aim to create a workplace where every employee feels empowered to prioritize safety and contribute to our overall safety culture. Our commitment to safety extends to our customers and the communities we serve, as we believe that safety is a shared responsibility.

At Ace Gases, we recognize the importance of being prepared for any emergency situation involving electronic specialty gases (ESG). That’s why we have established an Emergency Response Team (ERT) dedicated to handling such incidents and ensuring the safety of our employees and customers.

The purpose of forming the ERT is to have a specialized team equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills, and resources to respond effectively to emergencies related to ESG. This includes incidents such as leaks, spills, or other unexpected events that may pose risks to personnel or the environment.

ERT members undergo comprehensive training specifically focused on handling ESG. They are educated on the properties of different ESG, including their chemical characteristics, potential hazards, and safe handling procedures. This knowledge enables them to assess and mitigate risks effectively in emergency situations.

Through ERT training, team members learn how to respond swiftly and efficiently in emergency scenarios. They are trained in proper containment and cleanup procedures, as well as the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) to ensure their own safety while handling ESG.

The ERT plays a critical role in coordinating emergency response efforts, working closely with relevant authorities and stakeholders. They are responsible for implementing emergency protocols, providing guidance to personnel on evacuation procedures, and liaising with external resources if necessary.

By having a dedicated ERT, we are able to respond promptly to any ESG-related emergency, minimizing potential risks and ensuring the safety of our employees, customers, and the surrounding environment. The ERT is an integral part of our commitment to maintaining a safe workplace and upholding the highest standards of emergency preparedness.

Containment methods

Ace Gases prioritizes the safety of handling electronic specialty gases (ESG) and employs various containment methods to ensure their safe storage and transportation. These methods include Chlorine Kits A and B, designed to control leaks or spills of chlorine gas, with absorbent materials, neutralizing agents, and personal protective equipment. For larger ESG cylinders, dedicated cylinder containment vessels are used, constructed with robust materials and safety mechanisms. In damaged or compromised cylinders, chemical coffins are employed to securely hold and isolate the cylinder. These measures aim to minimize the risk of leaks or exposure to hazardous gases. Our personnel undergo thorough training in the proper usage of these containment methods to prevent accidents and prioritize safety. By implementing these measures, we ensure the safe handling and storage of ESG, providing peace of mind to our team members and customers. Safety is of utmost importance to us, and we remain committed to maintaining a secure work environment and minimizing risks associated with ESG handling.

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Ace Gases prioritizes safety by providing and enforcing the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for various areas of work. This includes face protection (safety spectacles, eye goggles, face shields), respiratory protection (SCBA, air-purifying respirators), head protection (hard hats, bump caps), hand protection (fabric gloves, leather gloves, chemical-resistant gloves, cryogenic gloves, impact-proof gloves), and body protection (proximity suits, fire entry suits, chemical protection suits). Ace Gases emphasizes the importance of proper PPE usage and provides comprehensive training to ensure a safe working environment and prioritize employee well-being.

Transportation Risk Management

At Ace Gases, we prioritize Transportation Risk Management as a fundamental aspect of our operations to ensure the safe and secure delivery of gases to our valued customers. Our approach encompasses comprehensive measures to mitigate potential risks and ensure the smooth movement of hazardous materials throughout the supply chain.

Here’s how we uphold Transportation Risk Management:

Stringent Safety Protocols

We adhere to strict safety protocols during the transportation, handling, and delivery of gases, complying with all relevant regulations and industry standards.

Well-Maintained Transport Fleet

Our vehicles undergo regular maintenance and inspection to ensure they are in optimal condition, minimizing the risk of incidents during transit.

Trained and Certified Drivers

Our drivers are highly trained and certified in hazardous materials transportation, equipped to handle any unforeseen situations safely and efficiently.

Real-Time Tracking

We utilize advanced tracking technology to monitor shipments in real-time, allowing us to address any potential issues proactively.

Emergency Response Team

In the rare event of an incident, our dedicated Emergency Response Team (ERT) is ready to provide immediate assistance and containment.

Risk Assessment

We conduct comprehensive risk assessments to identify potential hazards and implement necessary precautions before transportation.

Collaboration with Partners

We work closely with our partners in the logistics chain to ensure alignment in safety practices and uphold a shared commitment to Transportation Risk Management.

By prioritizing Transportation Risk Management, Ace Gases aims to provide our customers with the utmost confidence in the safe and timely delivery of our high-quality gases, while safeguarding the well-being of our employees, the community, and the environment.


Internal Compliance Check

At Ace Gases, our Internal Compliance Check ensures strict adherence to industry regulations, company policies, and safety standards. Our dedicated team conducts regular assessments to verify operational compliance, identify potential risks, and take corrective actions. This systematic approach guarantees a safe and responsible environment, assuring the highest quality in our products and services. Our unwavering commitment to compliance prioritizes customer satisfaction and upholds ethical practices, fostering trust and reliability in all our business dealings.

The systematic identification and evaluation of risks posed by our plants to employees, nearby companies, or the public is of utmost importance. To achieve this, our management system sets clear goals. These goals include effectively identifying and managing the highest potential hazards, measuring risk, and implementing controls for significant risk reduction. The initiatives involve comprehensive monitoring of all critical aspects of occupational health and safety related to maximum potential hazards. As part of the program, it is mandatory for all Ace Gases facilities dealing with hazardous substances to hold a valid license obtained through an internal compliance check.
