Safe Gas Garage

Marathon Technical Services and Clean Fuels Ohio are pleased to provide a series of free, downloadable and online educational materials on the proper and safe way to design, build, and operate maintenance facilities for CNG, LNG, Hydrogen and Propane vehicles.  These are based on our very popular onsite training sessions which we have provided across the USA.

 

We wish to thank the US Department of Energy for their substantial support to the development and delivery of this important training program.

 

What You Will Receive through this Training Program:

  • A more complete understanding of how gases behave and why the upgrades that are required by code and best practices are in place

  • An understanding of code requirements as well as current best practice

  • An understanding of certain gaps in codes—why literal code wording compliance alone may not fully address certain risks

  • Fluency in the industry terms

  • A “how to” discussion of the implementation of the various code and best practice requirements and recommendations

  • Case studies of various fleet facilities with the appropriate gaseous fuel upgrades

  • A full-color downloadable training manual valued at $45 for no charge!

Why is this the proper Upgrade of Maintenance Garage Facilities Important when Introducing Gaseous Fuel Vehicles:

  • Gaseous fuels behave differently from conventional fuels

  • To maintain a safe, comfortable and productive workplace for personnel

  • To ensure that the building can adequately respond to an unintentional release of fuel

  • To ensure code compliance

Who Should Access this Training:
  • Fleet Owners and Operators

  • Fire Marshalls

  • Permitting and Construction Inspection Officials

  • Architects and Engineers

  • Contractors and Equipment Suppliers
