TCM LP Forklifts

Propane Tank Policies
The gas container, LP System or liquefied petroleum system is a collective term by OSHA which refers to the regulators, piping, hoses, regulators, fittings and valves. Depending on the tank capacity, the agency needs particular components. These individual components must go trough standard laboratory testing. The correct laboratory approval will show that the system components meet construction, pressure and thickness standards.

Tank Location
The OSHA is the group who dictates how near the propane tank is situated to buildings, to ignitable materials, to tanks containing flammable liquids, welders and cutting torches. These stringent rules are in place to make the jobsite very safe for the workers and those others who are nearby.

Nameplate Marks
LP systems require that the name, the address, the container supplier, and or the tanks trade name, be marked on the propane container. The capacity of the container is to be listed with the following information: gallons or pounds of fuel, square foot outside surface, pressure and fill level. In addition, details about whether or not the container is made to be installed above ground or underground is also visible. These markings should be on a metal plate connected to the container somewhere in plain sight. OSHA requires that each tank should be marked by the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors in order to be considered ready and safe to utilize.

Tank Modifications and Repairs
OSHA also regulates any repairs to the LP systems, like welding. The workers performing repairs and the tank owners must know the standards and regulatory codes that the tanks were manufactured. Welding repairs to any component of the system that is subject to internal pressure should first follow these fabrication codes. Any other type of welding is just allowed on saddle plates, lugs or brackets.

The OSHA works hard to make certain that those who work with lift trucks and in their vicinity are kept safe. They have stringent training procedures and rules in place so as to make certain that these industrial equipment and their repair processes are handled as safe as possible and with respect. It is very vital that companies follow their rules and steep fines can occur if they are not adhered to.
