Industry Efforts to Safeguard Propane Use
GAS Check® is an inspection program developed by the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) and the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), and funded by the propane industry that provides guidelines to technicians on how to perform two different types of residential safety inspections:
- “Gas Check” which can be completed on the gas delivery system, including the containers, regulators, and appurtenances.
- A “Gas Appliance System Check” which includes all of the items of a “Gas Systems Check” as well as on all propane-burning appliances. GAS Check® also educates homeowners on the safe use of propane and the maintenance of propane appliances.
The Certified Employee Training Program (CETP) developed by NPGA and funded by PERC is a training program used extensively throughout the country by people involved in the handling of propane, equipment, and appliances.
