Industry Involvement in Safety and Training

Training and informing industry and consumers on the safe handling, storage, and use of propane is a top priority at PERC. From across the nation propane professionals have come together to help us guide and support the industry's efforts to build and maintain high public confidence in propane's safety and value. We take pride in the industry's exemplary record and its commitment to the safety of everyone who works with, buys, and depends on propane.

The Safety and Training Working Group of the Council's Advisory Committee leads PERC's mandated mission to develop programs and projects to enhance consumer and employee safety and training. In fulfilling this role, the Working Group acknowledges a fiduciary responsibility to both the propane industry and society.

The Working Group works with marketers, NPGA, and state associations to provide leadership, vision, and resources for ongoing safety and training efforts. Produced under the Working Group's supervision, PERC courseware and materials train and educate first responders, marketers, and consumers on safe handling of propane and provide regulatory compliance assistance to the propane industry.
