TCM LP Forklifts

Propane Tank Rules
The gas container, liquefied petroleum system or LP system is a collective term by OSHA that refers to the piping, regulators, hoses, regulators, fittings and valves. Depending on the capacity of the tank, the agency needs certain parts. These individual components need to undergo standard laboratory testing. The correct laboratory approval would show that the system components meet thickness, construction and pressure standards.

Tank Location
The organization OSHA determines how near the propane tank can be mounted in relation to buildings, to ignitable materials, to tanks containing flammable liquids, cutting torches and welders. These strict rules are implemented to make the jobsite really safe for the workers and those others who are in close proximity.

Nameplate Marks
Liquefied Propane systems need to be marked with the name and the address of the supplier of the container, or tank trade name. The container capacity is listed in pounds or gallons, square foot outside surface, pressure and fill level. Moreover, information regarding whether or not the container is designed to be installed underground or above ground is also visible. These markings should be on a metal plate connected to the container somewhere in plain sight. OSHA requires that every tank should be marked by the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors in order to be considered ready and safe to use.

Tank Repairs and Modifications
OSHA also regulates any type of maintenance to the LP systems, such as welding. The personnel performing repairs and the tank owners must know the regulatory codes and standards which the tanks were manufactured. Welding repairs to any system part which is subject to internal pressure should first comply with these fabrication codes. Other welding is just allowed on brakctes, saddle plates or lugs.

OSHA has worked hard to ensure that people working with lift trucks and those working nearby lift trucks are kept as safe as possible. They have strict training procedures and regulations in place in order to make sure that these industrial machines and their repair processes are handled with respect and as safe as possible. It is essential that companies follow their rules and steep fines can occur if they are not adhered to.
