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

Tank Location
The OSHA is the group which dictates how near the propane tank is situated to ignitable materials, to buildings, to tanks that contain flammable liquids, welders and cutting torches. These stringent rules are implemented to make the jobsite really safe for the employees and those others who are in close proximity.

Nameplate Marks
LP systems require that the name, the address, the container supplier, and or the tanks brand name, be marked on the propane container. The container capacity is to be listed with the following details: gallons or pounds of fuel, square foot outside surface, pressure and fill level. In addition, information regarding whether or not the container is made for installation underground or above ground is also visible. These markings must be on a metal plate connected to the container somewhere visible. OSHA requires that every tank should be marked by the Pressure Vessel Inspectors and National Board of Boiler so as to be considered ready and safe to use.

Tank Modifications and Repairs
Any repairs to LP systems that require welding are regulated by OSHA. Repair workers and tank owners need to be familiar with regulatory codes and standards which the tanks were made. Welding repairs to any system part which is subject to internal pressure needs to first comply with these fabrication codes. Other welding is only permitted on saddle plates, lugs or brackets.

The OSHA works hard to make certain that those who work with lift trucks and in their vicinity are kept safe. They have stringent training procedures and rules in place so as to make certain that these industrial machinery and their repair processes are handled as safe as possible and with respect. It is important that businesses follow their rules and steep fines could happen if they are not adhered to.
