NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code helps you protect homes, businesses and industrial settings from LP-Gas leaks and explosions.
NFPA 58: Liquefied Petroleum Gas Code is the industry benchmark for LP-Gas safety. The Code provides minimum safety requirements for all Liquefied Petroleum Gas (propane) installations, from small cylinders installed at residences to large bulk storage facilities that can exceed 100,000 gallons. Requirements encompass safe handling during LP-Gas transfer, including operator qualifications, maximum filling quantity in containers, and pre-transfer inspections to ensure containers are fit for continued service. Each Code edition incorporates new information about safety practices, reflecting the latest field experience and industry advances.
NFPA’s Redline PDF contains both the current NFPA document and a Redline version of the document which shows changes from the previous edition marked in color. With the Redline you can quickly spot changed sections and tell specifically what has been changed from the previous edition, saving time and confusion.
