Basic Training Information for LPG
Liquefied petroleum gas is a colorless propane fuel. Also known as LPG, this fuel is odorless and is derived from natural gas. LPG contains 90 percent propane. It is extracted in a process called distilling.
Liquid petroleum gas gas should be handled with care to prevent possible fires and explosions which happen with the improper installation or maintenance of gas lines. Liquid petroleum gas domestic appliances require correct installation and maintenance in order to prevent mishaps.
Accident-prevention training is vital for anybody working directly with liquid petroleum gas. Correct refueling methods and ways to check for leaks must be included in training. Training must also consist of knowing how to wear personal protective gear and being alert to dangers like damaged hoses or loose fittings.
Liquid petroleum gas could be a dangerous fuel, so workers must be familiar with emergency measures in the event of fires and explosions. Training should involve gas leak control, first aid and evacuation.
Storage of tanks - whether a large refueling tank or a small fuel canister - should be at a secure place a safe distance from any building. "No Smoking" warnings must be posted. To make certain that tanks are only accessed by authorized employees, the tanks must be locked in a secure enclosure which is designed to be protected from vehicle impact. Concrete bumpers or other retaining systems are better. The fueling station should have an accessible fire extinguisher. Just those trained to use the fueling station should be permitted to do so. Personnel also must be trained to utilize the fire extinguisher.
HRSDC and OSHA require that operators undergo training consisting of hands-on, practical, and in-class training. Trainees will be tested to make certain that they know the safety problems associated in forklift operation.
