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

Considerations
LPG fuel can be really safe but it must be handled carefully to prevent explosions and fire which may take place with improper maintenance or installation of gas lines. LPG domestic appliances require proper installation and maintenance in order to avoid mishaps.

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

Emergency Preparation
LPG could be a hazardous fuel, so workers should be familiar with emergency procedures in the event of fires and explosions. Training must include first aid, evacuation and gas leak control.

Fuel Storage
When storing tanks from the large refueling tank or a small fuel canister, one must secure a safe place away from buildings. Warnings of no smoking should be posted. To ensure tanks are just accessed by authorized personnel, the tanks have to be locked in a secure enclosure that is designed to be protected from vehicle impact. Concrete bumpers or other retaining systems are great. The fueling station should have an accessible fire extinguisher. Only individuals trained to use the fueling station should be allowed to do so. Employees also must be trained to use the fire extinguisher.

Operator Training
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that anyone using a forklift should undergo a training course consisting of both in-class and practical, hands-on training. Trainees will be tested to ensure they understand the safety issues associated in forklift operation.
