TCM LP Forklifts

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

Tank Location
The OSHA is the organization that dictates how near the propane tank is situated to buildings, to ignitable materials, to tanks that contain flammable liquids, cutting torches and welders. These stringent rules are in place to make the jobsite as safe as possible for the workers and those others who are in close proximity.

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 designed for installation above ground or underground is also visible. These markings must be on a metal plate connected to the container somewhere visible. OSHA requires that every tank must be marked by the Pressure Vessel Inspectors and National Board of Boiler so as to be considered safe and ready to utilize.

Tank Modifications and Repairs
OSHA also regulates any type of repairs to the LP systems, like welding. The employees performing repairs and the tank owners should understand the regulatory codes and standards that the tanks were manufactured. Welding repairs to any part of the system which is subject to internal pressure has to first comply with these fabrication codes. Other welding is just permitted on brakctes, saddle plates or lugs.

OSHA has worked hard to make sure that people working with lift trucks and people working nearby forklifts are kept as safe as possible. They have stringent regulations and training procedures in place in order to make sure that these industrial machinery 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.
