Propane Tank Policies
The liquid petroleum or LP system style gas container is an OSHA term which refers to the regulators, piping, hoses, regulators, valves and fittings. The agency needs specific components depending upon the tank's capacity. These individual components must undergo standard laboratory testing. The correct laboratory approval shows that the system components meet construction, pressure and thickness standards.

Tank Location
The OSHA is the organization that dictates how near the propane tank is located to buildings, to ignitable materials, to tanks that contain inflammable liquids, welders and cutting torches. These stringent regulations are in place to make the jobsite as safe as possible for the employees and those others who are nearby.

Nameplate Marks
Liquefied Propane systems need to be marked with the address and the name of the container supplier, or tank trade name. The container capacity is listed in gallons or pounds, square foot outside surface, fill level, and pressure. Additionally, details 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 connected to the container somewhere visible. OSHA requires that each tank must be marked by the Pressure Vessel Inspectors and National Board of Boiler so as to be considered safe and ready to utilize.

Tank Modifications and Repairs
OSHA also regulates any kind of maintenance to the LP systems, such as welding. The personnel performing repairs and the tank owners must understand the regulatory codes and standards that the tanks were manufactured. Welding repairs to any system part that is subject to internal pressure needs to first comply with these fabrication codes. Other welding is only permitted on brakctes, saddle plates or lugs.

OSHA has worked hard to make sure that people working with lift trucks and individuals working in the vicinity of forklifts are kept as safe as possible. They have strict training procedures and rules in place in order to make certain that these industrial machinery and their repair processes are handled with respect and as safe as possible. It is really vital that businesses follow their rules and steep fines can occur if they are not adhered to.
