Propane safety for your food truck
As a cooking fuel, propane has a great safety record but, like any energy source, you need to know how to spot a safety problem and take care of it quickly. Here’s a quick guide to safety for your food truck:
- Understand the markings on your propane tank, which show what type of tank you have, the tank’s manufacture date, and its recertification date.
- Learn the different kinds of propane cylinder requalification, and know if your tanks need to be recertified (if you’re not sure, contact us – we can help). Cylinders that are beyond their certification period may not work safely!
- A propane leak smells like rotten eggs; teach anyone who works in the truck how to detect the smell and what to do in the event of a leak.
- Keep flammable liquids (cleaners, gasoline, etc.) away from gas-burning equipment. The pilot burner can ignite fumes from these liquids.
- Know where the gas lines are located inside your truck so you can avoid damage when moving appliances, shelves and equipment.
- Never attempt to fix a leak yourself! If you suspect a leak, contact us before you use the equipment—your safety depends on it!
