Basic Training Information for Liquid Petroleum Gas
Liquefied petroleum gas contains 90 percent propane and has no smell or color. This fuel, also known as LPG, derives from natural gas. Liquid Petroleum Gas is extracted utilizing a process called distilling.

Considerations
LPG fuel has to be carefully handled. It is usually safe, but can lead to a fire or explosion if gas lines are improperly installed or maintained. Proper installation and maintenance guidelines must always be followed for home appliances which use LPG.

Prevention
Employees who work directly with liquid petroleum gas should undertake training in accident prevention to ensure safe handling. There are refueling procedures that must be carefully followed. Employees should also be taught how to recognize hazards like loose fittings or damaged hoses, and how to test for possible leaks. Personal protective gear must always be worn when working with liquid petroleum gas.

Emergency Preparation
Potentially, the LPG gas is dangerous. The employees in charge of handling this gas need to be taught and prepared to respond to emergencies. Trainees will be taught how to evacuate places at risk, how to control gas leaks and how to administer first aid.

Various Sizes of Liquid Petroleum Gas Tanks
LPG tanks would vary in size from small tanks the size of a knapsack all the way to large underground tanks. Liquid petroleum Gas is very useful for heating and cooking for both commercial and residential applications. Many lift truck units are powered by LPG. Roughly 350,000 U.S. vehicles and 3.5 million motor vehicles all over the globe use LPG tanks.

33 Gallons
There is a 33-gallon gas tank used to deliver liquid petroleum gas to commercial machinery. When empty, the tank weighs roughly 7 kilograms. When full, the tank can have 14 kilograms of propane. It is large enough for industrial use, and is designed to fuel lift trucks with LPG engines. The tank has a 30 centimeter diameter and is 71 centimeters long.
