TCM LP Forklifts

Propane Tank Rules
The gas container, LP System or liquefied petroleum system is a collective term by OSHA that refers to the regulators, piping, hoses, regulators, valves and fittings. Depending on the tank capacity, the agency requires specific components. These individual parts have to go trough recognized laboratory testing. The right laboratory approval proves that the system components meet pressure, thickness and construction standards.

Tank Location
The OSHA is the group which dictates how near the propane tank is located to buildings, to ignitable materials, to tanks containing flammable liquids, cutting torches and welders. These strict regulations are implemented to make the jobsite as safe as possible for the employees and other individuals who are in close proximity.

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

Tank Modifications and Repairs
OSHA also regulates any kind of repairs to the LP systems, like welding. The personnel performing repairs and the tank owners should know the regulatory codes and standards that the tanks were made. Welding repairs to any system part which is subject to internal pressure should first comply with these fabrication codes. Other welding is only allowed on saddle plates, lugs or brackets.

The OSHA works hard to ensure that people who work with forklifts and in their vicinity are kept safe. They have strict regulations and training procedures in place in order to make certain that these industrial machines and their repair processes are handled with respect and as safe as possible. It is very vital that companies follow their rules and steep fines could occur if they are not adhered to.
