PERC Reinforces Propane Safety with New Resources

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) introduced a new collection of safety resources, in conjunction with National Forklift Safety Day, to support crews nationwide.

The free resources, found online at, are highlighted with an eight-part video series each emphasizing a different safety protocol for those working with or around propane forklifts. Additional resources include a downloadable safety poster, a tool kit for safety directors and forklift dealers, and PERC’s forklift trivia game.
“These resources were created to help crews build and maintain a strong safety culture not only around National Forklift Safety Day, but all year round,” said Jeremy Wishart, director of technical communications at PERC. “The resources are wide in scope, bringing attention to safety reminders big and small. Plus, they can be consumed virtually while much of the country is staying safe at home.”

Propane checks many boxes that are important for a successful operation, making it a leader in the material handling market. In fact, propane currently holds a 90% market share for Class 4 and 5 forklifts. Supply chain professionals across the country are looking to this clean, versatile energy source for reliable power and performance, minimal downtime, and lower emissions.
