New alternative fuel vehicle maintenance garage training
 

July 19, 2019. Upgrading vehicle maintenance facilities to safely accommodate natural gas, hydrogen, or propane service can be a deciding factor in whether an organization chooses to adopt one of these fuels for its fleet. Upgrading a garage for code compliance can be confusing, unnecessarily expensive, and time consuming.

   GTI is developing in-person workshops and online resources that will provide a guide for how to upgrade maintenance garages for natural gas, hydrogen, and propane service. These workshops and resources will cover important topics, including gas detection, emergency ventilation, heating, alarm systems, and a review of fuel properties.

   Free workshops will include a half-day of classroom activity and learning tools, followed by a visit to an actual garage to see a completed upgrade or one in progress.

   Materials will be available on the training website for free and include reports, videos, case studies, best practices, and strategies for cost-effective code compliance.

   The next workshop will be held on August 7, 2019 at the Rush Truck Center, Northwest Houston – 6949 Fairbanks N. Houston Road, Houston, Texas 77040.
