Basic Training Information for LPG
Liquid petroleum gas or LPG is a colourless and odourless fuel derived from natural gas. LPG contains 90 percent propane. It is extracted in a process called distilling.

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

Prevention
For anybody working directly with liquid petroleum gas, accident prevention training is critical. Included in training should be proper methods for refueling and ways for testing for leaks. Training should also include knowing how to wear personal protective gear and being alert to dangers like loose fittings or damaged hoses.

Emergency Preparation
LPG could be a volatile fuel, so workers should be familiar with emergency measures in the event of fires and explosions. Training must include evacuation, gas leak control and first aid.

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 make certain that tanks are only accessed by authorized personnel, 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 great. The fueling station should have an accessible fire extinguisher. Just people trained to utilize the fueling station should be allowed to do so. Employees also should be trained to use the fire extinguisher.

Operator Training
OSHA and HRSDC require that operators undertake training consisting of practical, in-class and hands-on training. Trainees will be tested to make certain that they know the safety problems associated in utilizing a forklift.
