Recently, favorable price, low emissions and secure supply of auto gas (LPG - Liquefied petroleum gas), as well as enhancing the reliability and safety in use of gas devices (LPG) and automotive gas filling stations (AGS), contribute to the perception of natural gas as one of the most attractive fuels for road transport [1,2,3].
During transportation, storage, distribution (refueling) and the use of autogas, because of its specific properties (colorless with smell, insoluble in water, heavier than air, highly flammable, forming an explosive mixture with air), it is imperative that strict rules and regulations containing design and construction, organizational and human induced (technical, technological, operational) and anthropogenic requirements for the organization of safety at work [4,5,6].
