Basic Training Information for LPG
Liquefied petroleum gas is a colorless propane fuel. Also referred to as LPG, this fuel is derived from natural gas and is odorless. LPG consists of 90% propane. It is extracted in a process referred to as distilling.

Considerations
LPG fuel can be very safe but it must be carefully handled to avoid fire and explosions which may occur with incorrect maintenance or installation of gas lines. Liquid petroleum gas domestic appliances require correct maintenance and installation in order to avoid accidents.

Prevention
Accident-prevention training is critical for anyone working directly with LPG. Proper refueling ways and methods to check for leaks must be included in training. Training must also include knowing how to wear personal protective gear and being alert to hazards such as loose fittings or damaged hoses.

Emergency Preparation
Liquid petroleum gas could be a dangerous fuel, so employees should be familiar with emergency procedures in the event of fires and explosions. Training should involve first aid, evacuation and gas leak control.

Fuel Storage
Storage of tanks - whether a small fuel canister or a large refueling tank - must be at a safe place a safe distance from any building. "No Smoking" warnings should be posted. To ensure tanks are just accessed by authorized employees, the tanks should be locked in a safe enclosure that is designed to be protected from vehicle impact. Concrete bumpers or other retaining systems are great. The fueling station must have an accessible fire extinguisher. Only people trained to use the fueling station should be allowed to do so. Employees also must be trained to utilize the fire extinguisher.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that anybody operating a lift truck should undergo a training program consisting of both in-class and hands-on, practical training. Trainees would be tested to ensure they know the safety issues involved in forklift operation.
