TCM LP Forklifts
Propane Tank Policies
The LP or liquid petroleum system style gas container is an OSHA term which refers to the piping, regulators, hoses, regulators, fittings and valves. The agency needs particular components depending upon the tank's capacity. These individual components must undergo standard laboratory testing. The correct laboratory approval proves that the system components meet construction, pressure and thickness standards.
The organization OSHA determines how close the propane tank can be mounted in relation to buildings, to ignitable materials, to tanks which contain flammable liquids, cutting torches and welders. These stringent rules are implemented to make the jobsite really safe for the employees and other individuals who are nearby.
Liquefied Propane systems need to be marked with the address and the name of the supplier of the container, or tank trade name. The container capacity is listed in gallons or pounds, square foot outside surface, fill level, and pressure. Furthermore, details regarding 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 somewhere visible to the container. OSHA requires that each tank must be marked by the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors in order to be considered safe and ready to utilize.
Tank Modifications and Repairs
OSHA also regulates any repairs to the LP systems, such as welding. The employees performing repairs and the tank owners must know the regulatory codes and standards that the tanks were made. Welding repairs to any component of the system that is subject to internal pressure needs to first comply with these fabrication codes. Any other kind of welding is just allowed on lugs, brackets or saddle plates.
OSHA has worked hard to ensure that those working with lift trucks and those working in the vicinity of forklifts are kept as safe as possible. They have stringent training procedures and regulations in place so as to make certain that these industrial machines and their repair processes are handled as safe as possible and with respect. It is very essential that companies follow their rules and steep fines can happen if they are not followed.
