The build-up of deposits in fuel systems, in particular, the vaporiser units of LPG-powered vehicles, such as forklift trucks, has led to a number of fires.
HSE requires to take the following actions:
Review your safe system of work in relation to the use of all LPG-powered lift trucks and similar vehicles
Provide information, instruction and training for all operators about the hazards raised in the alert
Park LPG vehicles in well-ventilated areas free from flammable material, particularly when parking overnight or for longer periods
