Thus, it is a requirement that whenever you are completing a re-fueling process or exchanging the propane tank a complete face shield or safety goggles and thick gloves should be worn for protection. Lots of workplaces need steel-toe boots to be worn also when lifting heavy items is part of your job. Each workplace has various rules set in place that pertain to the company's specific needs.

Propane gas is extremely flammable and it is really vital that it is never exposed to any kind of ignition source or an extremely dangerous exploding situation will unfold.

Check the Valve
Before connecting the fuel line during a tank exchange, make sure that the valve on the new tank is turned off. If you inadvertently insert the fuel line into a valve that is open, propane gas would be released. Overlooking this factor can possibly create a really terrible situation.

Fire Extinguisher
When the tank is being changed out or during the re-fueling process, a fire extinguisher must be made available. The majority of businesses require that a fire extinguisher be mounted on each lift truck. This is a really essential safety rule which should be made a priority within the workplace.

Secure the Tank
Most propane tanks will utilize a restraining device like a strap or bracket to keep the tank stable.
