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

Considerations
Liquid petroleum gas gas should be handled with care to avoid possible fires and explosions which happen with the improper maintenance or installation of gas lines. Liquid petroleum gas domestic appliances require proper maintenance and installation to avoid accidents.

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

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

Fuel Storage
When storing tanks from a small fuel canister to the large refueling tank, one should secure a safe location away from buildings. Warnings of no smoking must be posted. To make certain that tanks are only accessed by authorized personnel, the tanks need to be locked in a secure 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 individuals trained to operate 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 operating a lift truck must undergo a training course consisting of both in-class and practical, hands-on training. Trainees would be tested to make sure that they know the safety problems involved in using a forklift.
