Sharp Sets the Standard for Safety & Service
Sharp’s safety program was developed by experienced safety professionals from research, industry guidelines, and the 100+ years’ combined experience of our propane professionals. As the foundation of our commitment to our customers, our safety management protocols have set new industry standards of safety, responsibility and thoroughness in propane delivery and services. Several of our standards and procedures have been adopted industry-wide as mandatory regulations.
As propane professionals, we hold ourselves to stringent standards concerning the installation, operation and inspection of equipment, preventative maintenance and testing, and delivery of propane. We comply with all federal, state, and local regulations, including the Administration/Department of Transportation (FMC/DOT), Texas Railroad Commission (RRC), Texas LP-Gas Safety Rules, and OSHA. Our own high safety standards are upheld through the continuity and ongoing commitment to education of each Sharp professional.
Every Sharp team member is highly trained and certified to uphold each of Sharp’s safety standards:

What goes into being a service technician?
Being a service technician means much more than simple installations and service calls.
It involves proper site evaluation, keeping up with codes and regulations, working with plumbers and electricians and contractors, and meeting with customers before and during installation so that we know what kind of tank, line placement, and tank size is right for their home's energy needs...
