Fuelling your LPG forklift trucks from a bulk LPG tank is simple (not to mention quick and mess-free), but it’s important to make sure it’s done properly. Calor can offer all its customers LPG handling and safety training, on or off site, ensuring a safe working environment.
What we offer
At Calor, we’d like all your operating staff to be confident with using LPG, to ensure that your fleet is running professionally and efficiently, so we’ve developed a refueling training course for new and existing bulk customers. The initial refueling training course, which consists of a three hour level 1 course for to up to 6 operatives, is offered free of charge to new bulk customers, any additional training is then chargeable.
Level 1: Operator safe refuelling course
The operator safe refuelling course is a short, three hour course for operatives who refuel LPG forklifts from bulk LPG tanks using Calor Hand Dispenser Units (HDUs) or Electric Dispenser Units (EDUs).
This training involves a mix of theory and practical elements and will require operators to demonstrate an understanding of what’s been taught and to complete a written test.
Level 2: Instructor safe refuelling course
The instructor safe refuelling course is a more in-depth course designed for individuals who may need to teach others how to refuel LPG forklifts from a bulk tank.
This one day course has been designed specifically for trainers, instructors and managers, who need a more in-depth knowledge of LPG procedures, refuelling equipment and emergency procedures. At the end of the course, a written assessment will be completed, in order to solidify the participants knowledge further. A certificate will be given to each participant as a record of completing the course.
Along with the training, we have also produced a handy pocket-sized booklet called ‘A guide to safe refuelling’.The booklet covers personal safety, hazardous places and area classification, as well as housekeeping, cylinder storage, separation distances, installations, refuelling instructions, manual handling and action in an emergency.
