Basic Training Information for Liquid Petroleum Gas
Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG is a fuel that contains 90 percent propane and has no colour or smell. It is derived from natural gas. LPG is extracted using a process called distilling.
LPG fuel has to be carefully handled. It is usually safe, but can lead to an explosion or ire if gas lines are wrongly maintained or installed. Correct installation and maintenance guidelines must always be followed for home appliances which use liquid petroleum gas.
To guarantee safe handling, employees who work with liquid petroleum gas directly must undertake training. The handling and refueling procedures need to be carefully followed. Employees must also learn how to recognize hazards like for example damaged hoses or loose fittings, and how to test for potential leaks. Personal protective gear should always be worn when working with LPG.
Potentially, the LPG gas is hazardous. The employees in charge of handling this gas need to be trained and prepared to respond to emergencies. Trainees will learn how to control gas leaks, how to administer first aid and how to evacuate areas at risk.
