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

Tank Location
The OSHA is the group which dictates how near the propane tank is situated to ignitable materials, to buildings, to tanks that contain flammable liquids, cutting torches and welders. These strict regulations are in place to make the jobsite as safe as possible for the workers and other individuals who are nearby.

Nameplate Marks
LP systems require that the name, the address, the supplier of the container, and or the tanks trade name, be marked on the propane container. The container capacity is to be listed with the following information: gallons or pounds of fuel, square foot outside surface, pressure and fill level. Moreover, information about whether or not the container is designed to be installed above ground or underground is also visible. These markings have to be on a metal plate attached somewhere visible to the container. OSHA requires that every 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
Any kind of repairs to LP systems which require welding are regulated by OSHA. Repair personnel and tank owners need to be familiar with standards and regulatory codes which the tanks were manufactured. Welding repairs to any system component that is subject to internal pressure must first follow these fabrication codes. Any other type of welding is only permitted on saddle plates, lugs or brackets.

OSHA has worked hard to make sure that people working with lift trucks and individuals working nearby lift trucks are kept as safe as possible. They have stringent training procedures and regulations in place so as to make certain that these industrial machinery and their repair processes are handled with respect and as safe as possible. It is essential that businesses follow their rules and steep fines could happen if they are not followed.
