Food Trucks & Propane Safety

At Irish Propane, safety is a top priority. Propane has a wonderful safety record as a cooking fuel, but there are still important safety practices to be aware of. Here’s a brief guide to propane safety for your food truck:

  • It’s important that you understand all the markings on your propane tank. They indicate what type of tank you have, the tank’s manufacture date, and its recertification date.
  • You should learn the different kinds of propane cylinder requalification. You also need to know if your tanks need to be recertified, because cylinders past their certification period may not function safely. If you’re not sure, that’s something Irish Propane can help you determine.
  • Everyone working on your food truck should know how to detect a propane leak and what to do in the event of one. Never attempt to fix a leak yourself! If you suspect a leak, call 911 and then call us before you use your equipment. Click here for details on how to detect a propane leak and what to do when one is detected.
