Program Description

Infrastructure Health & Safety Association

Propane is widely used in construction for a variety of everyday tasks, including flame cutting, space heating, heating or melting materials, and powering internal combustion engines. It is important to understand the hazards of propane and to know the procedures and controls necessary to minimize those hazards. Special training is required to work safely with propane and propane equipment. This training program is designed to provide the information and hands-on practice necessary for construction workers to be able to safely connect, activate, and disconnect heaters, torches, and propane-powered equipment of less than 400,000 Btu/h, in accordance with Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) requirements. The training card has a 3 year expiry.

 

Program Content

  • Propane hazards

Personal Protective Equipment

Each participant is expected to bring their own CSA approved head, foot and eye protection as well as neoprene gloves. Participants will also be required to wear long sleeves and long pants and be dressed for outdoor activity. The participant will not be permitted to participate in the course if they do not bring the noted personal protective equipment and clothing.

 

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who works with or around propane.

 
NOTE

If you require certification in propane please be advised that the correct record of training relies on the type of equipment and/or appliance being used.

If additional Information is required please contact a Customer Service Representative.
