Gas Safety Guidance

Many groups use bottled gas (LPG) for cooking when at camp. It is vital to follow safe practices to avoid the risk of fire and carbon monoxide poisoning that can be posed by unsafe installation, poor storage or badly maintained equipment. This guidance document explains how to store, connect and use gas cylinders and appliances at camp, and the precautions you should take to minimise the risks to volunteers and young members.

Only volunteers who are competent to do so should install, maintain and use gas equipment while at camp, and equipment should be checked regularly to ensure that it is in safe working order, that connections are sound, and that gas hoses are in date.
