Avoid dropping, bumping or rolling cylinders when they are moved. Always handle cylinders in an upright position on wheeled carts.
A hoisting cage or properly designed hoisting apparatus must be used when transporting cylinders to roof level. Do not transport propane cylinders to and from the roof by ladder.
Do not connect to the protective collar to hoist or lower propane cylinders. In addition, never lift cylinders by cylinder valves.
When moving 45.4 kg (100 lb) cylinders by hand, two people are required. One person lifts the cylinder by the foot ring and the other by the protective collar. Do not pull or drag cylinders across roof membranes.
Propane cylinder valves must be protected from damage by protective collars, welded to the shoulder of the tank or by threaded collars screwed to the threaded collar on cap-type propane cylinders.
WARNING: BREAKING OF CYLINDER VALVE WILL CAUSE A HAZARDOUS CONDITION.
Protect roof membranes from damage while handling or storing cylinders on the roof surface. The best way to move cylinders is with a wheeled cart designed for that purpose.
