Although there might be more than one safe way to design, build, and operate a cryogenic system, the safety of any system depends not only upon the system itself, but also upon its interaction with other systems. Therefore, a knowledge of accepted safety practices and experience with existing systems is invaluable to safe operation either in new or existing cryogenic systems.
