Propane Tank Policies
The liquid petroleum or LP system style gas container is an OSHA term that refers to the regulators, piping, hoses, regulators, fittings and valves. The agency needs certain components depending upon the capacity of the tank. These individual parts need to go trough recognized laboratory testing. The correct laboratory approval proves that the system components meet pressure, thickness and construction standards.

Tank Location
The OSHA is the organization who dictates how near the propane tank is located to ignitable materials, to buildings, to tanks containing inflammable liquids, cutting torches and welders. These strict regulations are implemented to make the jobsite very safe for the workers and other individuals who are nearby.

Nameplate Marks
Liquefied Propane systems have to be marked with the address and the name of the supplier of the container, or tank brand name. The container capacity is listed in pounds or gallons, square foot outside surface, pressure and fill level. Moreover, information about whether or not the container is designed for installation underground or above ground is also visible. These markings need to be on a metal plate connected to the container somewhere visible. OSHA requires that each tank needs to be marked by the Pressure Vessel Inspectors and National Board of Boiler so as to be considered ready and safe to use.

Tank Repairs and Modifications
OSHA also regulates any type of repairs to the LP systems, like welding. The personnel performing repairs and the tank owners must know the standards and regulatory codes which the tanks were made. Welding repairs to any system component that is subject to internal pressure must first comply with these fabrication codes. Any other kind of welding is just allowed on lugs, brackets or saddle plates.

OSHA has worked hard to ensure that individuals working with lift trucks and those working nearby forklifts are kept as safe as possible. They have stringent training procedures and rules in place in order to make certain that these industrial machines and their repair processes are handled as safe as possible and with respect. It is very important that companies follow their rules and steep fines could occur if they are not adhered to.
