Safety alert issued after two barbeque gas explosions
NT WorkSafe has issued a safety alert to anyone who has built-in gas barbeques at their premises.
The safety alert highlights the gas explosion risk of poorly designed built in LP gas barbecues that do not have adequate ventilation.
Two gas explosions involving built in gas barbecues have caused injuries in the past 18 month.
The safety alert urges owners and facility managers with built in barbeques at their premises to take a number of actions to reduce the risk of gas explosions from the accumulation of LP gas in poorly ventilated built-in barbecues.
