SAFETY: HOW TO STORE BBQ GAS BOTTLES SAFELY

SAFETY: HOW TO STORE BBQ GAS BOTTLES SAFELY
19/03/2020

At this time of year, many people are thinking about getting the barbecue out of the garage or shed and setting it up on the few days of sunshine that we may be treated to during the spring and summer months!

So, as people start to bring their barbecue and equipment out of storage, they may be wondering how best to keep their equipment, and more specifically, the gas canisters, safe. This is incredibly important, so we have put together a few hints detailing how and where to store BBQ gas bottles safely and responsibly.

Store Gas Bottles Outdoors It’s important that any gas cylinders you have are stored outdoors. If you don’t have an outdoor space, then ensure that they are stored in a place that is extremely well ventilated. If you don’t have a space that is suitable, you should think about other options for fuel or storage such as asking a relative or neighbour to store your gas bottles responsibly.

If you fail to store your gas bottles appropriately, then you risk incurring an accident or fatality as a result of a gas leak.

If a gas bottle leaks whilst it is stored outdoors, the gas will easily disperse into the atmosphere. If the bottle is kept indoors with poor ventilation, however, the gas will have nowhere to escape and will fill the room. This can cause suffocation, poisoning, or – in the event of a stray spark or fire – explosions.
