Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

 

The Food and Safety Team are participating in an on-going national campaign led by the Health and Safety Executive focussing on the replacement of buried metallic pipework and fittings used in an liquified petroleum gas (LPG) systems with non-metallic materials such as polyethylene (plastic) which will not corrode.

 

The effect of an LPG leak from a damaged or corroded pipe or fitting can be catastrophic if the gas is allowed to build up.

 

The campaign has two main priorities:

 

Priority 1: Premises with medium pressure carbon steel pipework aged 10 years old or more at the time of 

                 the 2009/10 survey AND where any one or more of the factors listed below apply should be 

                 resolved by the end of 2015:

 

Regularly occupied by members of the public or

regularly occupied by more than 5 other persons, or

a cellar, basement or other significant below-floor void is present.

 

Priority 2:  Any other premises with carbon steel pipework should be resolved by the end of 2020.
