As one of Network Rail's customers you will have a number of responsibilities:
Acetylene is a highly flammable and explosive gas and poses a significant safety risk to the railway. A fire near acetylene is extremely dangerous.
It is treated by the Fire Service as an explosive and an exclusion zone of 200 metres around the scene of the fire is immediately set up. The exclusion zone stays for a minimum of 24 hours resulting in the following:
The cost of disruption can amount to hundreds of thousands of pounds and in some cases millions.
This can result in third-party claims for losses being made against the company or person responsible. Many businesses now use alternatives to acetylene which work just as well but pose far lower risks.
Please note: Customers must have written permission from Network Rail before they store any fuel gas in the property.
I walked around the building and peered into next door’s and couldn’t believe the amount of space you got. I contacted Network Rail the next day and it all went from there.
