Propane in Construction

Course Curriculum

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.

Learning Objectives:
  • Propane hazards
  • Legislation and safe practice
  • Connection, activation, and disconnection of propane


Each participant is expected to bring their own CSA approved head, foot and eye protection as well as neoprene gloves. Participants will also be required to wear long sleeves and long pants and be dressed for outdoor activity. The participant will not be permitted to participate in the course if they do not bring the noted personal protective equipment and clothing.

How can I benefit from this course?

  • Participants gain an understanding of the various types and sizes of propane cylinders; receiving and storage of cylinders at the construction site; transporting cylinders around the construction site; and regulatory requirements of cylinder use.

Is this course for me?

Anyone working with propane is required by law to have a record of training (ROT) to fill propane tanks and cylinders, transfer propane and operate propane fueled equipment.
