||Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is increasingly used as a fuel for industrial trucks, in particular because of its lower level of polluting emissions when compared with those produced by diesel fuel. The objective of this practical information sheet is to present the safety principles to be followed to avoid fire or explosion risks due to the presence of LPG during maintenance or repair of LPG-powered trucks. Contents: hazards (leaks, bursting of tanks); safety measures to be followed during use; safety measures to be followed during maintenance work; preventive measures in the event of leaks or fires.
