Propane Safety Information

Safety Starts with Education

The propane industry is engaged in ongoing training, education, and awareness-building efforts to promote and advance the safe handling, use, and maintenance of propane and propane-fueled equipment.

Top 5 Safety Tips

  • Grilling With Propane

    Follow your grill manufacturer's instructions for assembly, use, maintenance, cleaning and storage. Also, remember to place your grill in a safe location. Preferably, at least five feet away from your house or other hazards. Always be present and never leave your grill unattended.
  • Suspect a Gas Leak?

    Do not operate lights or phones. Leave the area, go outside and remove everyone from the building. Propane has an odor that smells like rotten eggs. If you smell this and it is safe to do so, immediately shut-off the main gas valve to your propane tank and call 911. Stay away from the building until your propane retailer says it's safe to re-enter.
  • Call 811 Before You Dig

    A federally mandated national number was created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. Whether you are a homeowner or professional, your underground utility lines will be marked for free when you call 811.
  • Transporting Cylinders

    Always make sure to store cylinders in a secure and upright position. Never leave your cylinder in a hot vehicle and take the cylinder out of your vehicle as soon as you reach your destination. Make sure you follow connection instructions and always check for leaks.
  • Manual Handling

    Manual handling is one of the leading causes of workplace injuries. These injuries can be prevented by distributing safety information and equipment, providing staff with advice and training on how to handle gas bottles, and rearranging methods of works to minimize manual handling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions


When you smell a pungent scent of rotten eggs, this is a sign of gas leakage. Immediately call 911 and evacuate your entire house. If it is indoors, open your windows and doors for ventilation and do not go near the tank. Technical experts need to handle such a situation. 


As compared to Natural Gas, Propane appliances life is longer due to complete burning. No soot is produced when Propane burns. Therefore, they are advised to be serviced in every 12 months.

No, you can’t. It’s too dangerous to have a Propane tank inside your home. Propane tanks are made to install outside, and capital and state laws also prohibit their storage inside the house.
