Be safe at your summer outdoor Event

Please give us a call if you are unsure about any of the safe information listed, as provided by the health and safety executive and government bodies.

If gas appliances, such as ovens, cookers and boilers, are not properly installed and maintained, there is a danger of fire, explosion, gas leaks and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

Employers need to comply with the relevant regulations to help ensure worker and public safety. You can do this by following our advice on maintaining and servicing gas appliances, by using a Gas Safe registered engineer or a competent person

Gas Safe

  • If you suspect a leak, turn off the supply and immediately call the National Gas Emergency Service on 0800 111 999 for natural gas. For liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), call your LPG supplier
  • If in doubt, evacuate the building and inform the police as well as the National Gas Emergency Service or your gas supplier
  • Do not turn a gas supply back on until a leak has been dealt with by a competent person

Appliances and pipework

  • Use a competent engineer to install, maintain or repair your appliances
  • Ensure that your gas pipework, appliances and flues are regularly maintained
  • Don’t use any appliance you know or suspect is unsafe
  • Check that the room has adequate ventilation – don’t block air inlets to prevent draughts and don’t obstruct flues and chimneys

Industrial and commercial plant

Explosions can be caused by the ignition of unburnt gas.

  • Consider the need for explosion relief and/or flame-failure protection as necessary
  • Make sure that the gas supply is interlocked with the ventilation of the appliance
  • The equipment should be designed, operated and maintained to make sure dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) are not produced. It should not be used in poorly ventilated spaces
  • There should be enough ventilation to remove combustion products
  • Make sure the operators are fully trained – use a safe procedure for purging, lighting up and shutting down the plant
