WorkSafe inspection finds unsafe levels of carbon monoxide in cylinders at East Gippsland shop

WorkSafe Victoria is warning divers who filled their tanks or cylinders at an East Gippsland dive shop not to use them after unsafe carbon monoxide levels were found.

An inspection conducted by the safety regulator found three cylinders containing carbon monoxide levels of at least 150 parts per million (PPM). The acceptable carbon monoxide level is 5 PPM.

The inspection was conducted following the death of a diver in Queenscliff in April.

WorkSafe warned divers against using any cylinder or air tank filled at the shop. They advised them to call 1800 136 089.
