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 method known as distilling.

Considerations
LPG gas should be handled with care to avoid potential explosions and fires that occur with the incorrect installation or maintenance of gas lines. LPG domestic appliances require correct installation and maintenance in order to prevent accidents.

Prevention
Accident-prevention training is vital for anyone working directly with LPG. Proper refueling methods and ways to check for leaks must be included in training. Training should also comprise knowing how to wear personal protective gear and being alert to dangers like for instance loose fittings or damaged hoses.

Emergency Preparation
LPG is a hazardous fuel and anyone working with it must be knowledgeable about emergency measures to follow in the event of explosion or fire. Training should include gas leak control, first aid and evacuation.

Fuel Storage
When storing tanks from a small fuel canister to the large refueling tank, one must secure a safe place away from buildings. Warnings of no smoking must be posted. To ensure tanks are only accessed by authorized personnel, the tanks must be locked in a safe enclosure that 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 individuals trained to use the fueling station should be permitted to do so. Employees also should be trained to utilize the fire extinguisher.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that anyone utilizing a forklift should undertake a training course consisting of both in-class and practical, hands-on training. Trainees will be tested to make certain that they understand the safety issues involved in using a lift truck.
