This video program, originally produced by the Chemical Safety Board, takes the viewer on a journey through the events that harmed the city of Ghent. In January of 2007, a propane gas explosion destroyed a small store. Several people were killed in this seemingly routine operation in Ghent, and this educational video discusses why, while reminding the viewer to practice constant vigilance.
As safety is the most important part of dealing with flammable gas, the most practical and realistic approaches are described in this video. Because of the results of Ghent, the importance of safety plugs and routine inspections are noted. Proper training as defined by OSHA is also investigated and suggested to be a standard when dealing with emergency tasks. Personal safety is also taken in to consideration, and this video clearly instructs the viewer to follow standard safety procedures to provide everyone involved a safe escape.
This training is a must for anyone who works closely with any kind of dangerous gas, specifically propane technicians. A short quiz follows the training video to ensure the viewer has understood all key concepts. Use this course as a reminder to employees of the hazards of working with propane.
