Forklift LPG Cylinder Training

WorkSafe and the Approved Code of Practice require that all PCBUs train their forklift operators how to swap an LPG cylinder if that's part of their everyday job. LPG is a dangerous fuel which can cause serious freeze burns (frostbite), asphyxiation and explosions if mishandled. This course explains how to change the cylinder and outlines what to look out for.

This training meets the requirements of Regulation 4.5.
