  1. Before turning on a gas burner or cooker, light the match or press the ignition button. If the burner will not light, turn off the gas supply immediately and wait for the gas smell to clear before trying again.
  2. Ensure that your cooker, burner or regulator is turned off when you leave the house or go to sleep.
  3. Make sure that you DO NOT turn the gas on to maximum before igniting it.
  4. All pilot lights or main burners should produce blue flame. If the flame is yellow or red you should call the manufacturer or a licensed gas fitter. Red or yellow flame by your cooker or burner is an indication of incomplete combustion, meaning that gas is being released without undergoing combustion/burning.
  5. If you get a headache or begin feeling sick or drowsy while using your gas appliance, turn it off. Then get it checked by a licensed/qualified person. This is an indication that there could be incomplete combustion. In this case some of the gas escapes un-burnt and when inhaled causes anesthesia (feeling drowsy, headaches).
  6. Spray aerosols (such as insecticides) should not be operated near gas appliances. The flammable gas in aerosols can be a fire hazard.
  7. Safety valves and other fittings on gas appliances should not be tampered with. This means that you should not use excessive force to open or close gas control knobs.
  8. Your oven and hot plates should be cleaned regularly to ensure that there is no buildup of spoiled fats or burnt foods as these could be flammable.
  9. Ensure that all gas appliances are serviced regularly by qualified persons
  10. If you are looking for a gas leak, DO NOT try to find it with a naked flame – cigarette lighter, matches, candles, oil lamps, etc.
  11. Do not throw filled cylinders down from a height. Handle with care.
  12. Do not allow children or untrained persons to tamper with gas appliances.

REMEMBER, LPG IS A GOOD SERVANT BUT A BAD MASTER.
