Coffee Break Training: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Hazards   [open pdf - 219KB]

"The recent tragic explosion in Ghent, West Virginia, is a sad reminder of some of the hazardous properties of LPG and the danger that may occur when investigating reported leaks. Liquefied petroleum gases make up a family of hydrocarbon products that includes propane, butane, isobutane, propylene, and butylenes. Most commercial applications employ propane or butane. Commercial grades are not chemically pure, and can contain small percentages of other constituents."
