Propane Safety

Propane Safety (11 min.) Liquefied petroleum gas, commonly called LPG or LP gas is a mixture of several hydrocarbon gases. Propane and butane, used separately or in mixtures, are the principal LP gases. Propane is the LP gas most widely used in the USA. Propane is a vapor at normal temperatures and atmospheric pressure. Your gas supplier converts propane to a liquid by a combination of compression and cooling, which greatly reduces space requirements. Approximately 270 gallons of vapor can be converted to one gallon of liquid. Moderate pressure holds the propane in liquid form until needed and of course, a pressure tank is necessary to maintain this pressure. Propane has been a common fuel in homes and businesses since the early 1920s. Today, propane is used extensively for forklifts operating in warehouses because propane's clean burning properties eliminate sludge, carbon, and gum deposits, resulting in lower maintenance and operation costs, as well as reducing harmful exhaust emissions.

Topics included in this safety video are: basics of a propane-dispensing tank including the dispenser, what inspections and preventative maintenance are required, safety features of the system, basic safety knowledge of proper cylinder refueling operations by vehicle operators, safety, make sure the cylinder is approved, determine if there is any damage to the cylinder, before filling and never use the cylinder if damaged or defects are found, no open flames, sparks, or other sources of ignition near the refueling tank or area, no smoking, refueling, lift safely, check for gouges, dents, bulges, or other damage, leaks, relief valve, inspect seams and openings, wear PPE, protective plastic cap on the tank filler valve, maximum liquid level outage valve, transfer pump, excess LP gas, outage gauge, the characteristics of propane, and Material Safety Data Sheets.
