Propane Council Releases New Safety Guide
The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) released a new safety guide, “Propane Safety for Commercial Mowers” ahead of upcoming preparation for mowing season. Businesses that have commercial mowers are encouraged to review key safety measures with all operators and can download PERC’s new safety guide at Propane.com/mowersafety; users will need to create a free account to save the guide.
“The winter months are a great time to refresh crews on how to safely operate and handle a propane commercial mower,” says Mike Newland, PERC’s director of agriculture business development. “Slower winter months are also an ideal time to evaluate your fleet and business goals and make equipment purchases. Propane mowers are a proven clean energy option that boosts bottom lines without sacrificing performance.”
Propane is consistently less expensive at the pump, helping business submit more competitive bids with potential customers. Due to the ease of switching out empty fuel cylinders, propane-powered landscaping equipment can operate more continuously than gasoline-fueled or electric-powered landscape equipment, which require more time to refuel/recharge. PERC’s new safety guide highlights key topics including: Fuel supply; different types of cylinders; storing and changing cylinders, and training requirements.
“When a business uses propane for their fleet, a dedicated propane supplier can help with any training or compliance needs,” says Newland. “That level of tailored service isn’t found at a pump or a utility provider.”
