Propane in Construction

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.
