Health & Safety

Balloons are fun! Make sure they remain so by following the safety points outlined below:

Do's

  • When transporting a cylinder by car ensure that the vehicle is well ventilated and the cylinder is well secured.
  • Ensure cylinders are stored in well ventilated areas, away from direct heat.
  • Always wear eye protection when using a cylinder.
  • When inflating balloons always point the balloon and inflator away from you. Remember to close the cylinder valve after use.
  • Always use a proper trolley for moving large cylinders, even for a short distance
  • Always fasten the cylinder to a secure support in an upright position when in use. Cylinders can cause serious injury if they fall over or roll onto you.
  • Keep cylinders away from children at all times. Responsible adults only should use cylinders and other equipment.

Dont's

  • Do not deliberately inhale Balloonium® helium. Although not poisonous it can result in asphyxiation and even death.
  • Never open the cylinder valve without fitting an inflator, and then open the valve slowly.
  • Never use equipment which may be damaged.
  • Under no circumstances attempt to repair any item of equipment.
