Basic Training Information for Liquid Petroleum Gas
Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG is a fuel that has 90 percent propane and has no colour or smell. It is derived from natural gas. Liquid Petroleum Gas is extracted using a process called distilling.

Considerations
Liquid petroleum gas should be handled with care. Even though it is normally considered safe, it can result in a fire or explosion if the gas lines are not maintained or have not been properly installed. Proper maintenance and installation guidelines should be followed for home appliances that 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 which should be followed carefully. Employees must also be taught how to recognize hazards like for example 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
LPG is a potentially hazardous gas. Employees handling liquid petroleum gas must be taught to respond properly to emergencies. Trainees would be taught how to administer first aid, how to evacuate areas at risk, and how to control gas leaks.

Various Sizes of Liquid Petroleum Gas Tanks
LPG tanks will range in size from small tanks the size of a knapsack all the way to big underground tanks. LPG is really handy for heating and cooking for both residential and commercial applications. Numerous lift truck models are powered by LPG. Roughly 350,000 U.S. motor vehicles and 3.5 million vehicles all around the globe use LPG tanks.

33 Gallons
The 33-gallon gas tank delivers fuel to commercial grade machinery. The empty tank weighs about 7 kilograms. When full, the tank can hold 14 kilograms of propane. It is large enough for industrial application, and is designed to fuel lift trucks with LPG engines. The tank has a 30 centimeter diameter and is 71 centimeters long.
