Basic Training Information for LPG
Liquefied petroleum gas is a colorless propane fuel. Also referred to as LPG, this fuel is odorless and is derived from natural gas. LPG consists of 90% propane. It is extracted in a process referred to as distilling.

Considerations
LPG fuel can be really safe but it should be handled carefully to prevent explosions and fire which can take place with incorrect maintenance or installation of gas lines. LPG domestic appliances need correct installation and maintenance to avoid mishaps.

Prevention
Accident-prevention training is vital for anyone working directly with liquid petroleum gas. Correct refueling methods and ways to test for leaks should be included in training. Training should also comprise knowing how to wear personal protective gear and being alert to hazards like for example loose fittings or damaged hoses.

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

Fuel Storage
Storage of tanks - whether a large refueling tank or a small fuel canister - should be at a safe place a safe distance from any building. "No Smoking" warnings must be posted. To ensure tanks are just accessed by authorized personnel, the tanks must be locked in a safe enclosure which 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 people trained to use the fueling station should be permitted to do so. Employees also must be trained to use the fire extinguisher.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that anybody utilizing a lift truck should undergo a training program consisting of both in-class and practical, hands-on training. Trainees would be tested to ensure they know the safety problems associated in forklift operation.
