Propane is a common fuel used at home and at work, but its volatile and flammable nature requires safe handling practices. For members who refill propane canisters for customers or internal use, WR has added a new propane training and safety resource.
Practice these safety tips when handling propane:
- Keep all ignition sources far away from propane, including cigarettes, lighters, and anything else that could cause unwanted combustion.
- Ensure all propane tanks and canisters are in good condition, with no damage.
- Never use propane in any confined space.
- Always transport propane cylinders in a secure, upright position. Make sure they cannot fall or roll when being transported.
Members can access the new propane resource here. You may access it with your RS username and password. If you have difficulty with access, Chris Silver, Member Services & Data Coordinator, will be glad to assist. [email protected] or 360-943-9198 X 122.
