Propane is widely used in construction for a variety of everyday tasks, including flame cutting,
space heating, heating or melting materials, and powering internal combustion engines. This
training program is designed to provide the information and hands-on practice necessary for
construction workers to be able to safely connect, activate, and disconnect heaters, torches, and
propane-powered equipment of less than 400,000 Btu/h, in accordance with Technical Standards
and Safety Authority (TSSA) requirements.
