LPG is a very safe product when stored and used correctly. However, it is a flammable, pressurised gas, and therefore it’s our duty to explain any potential dangers and minimise any risks. Whether you’re a domestic or commercial customer, we urge everyone using LPG to read through our dedicated safety guides and technical information; to keep you informed, and most importantly, safe.

From bulk LPG safety tips through to cylinder handling and storage advice – at Flogas, we have you covered.*

Cylinder handling

  • Do not store or use bottles in the horizontal position. A leak could be very serious and liquid could enter gas lines.
  • Do not drop bottles off vehicles or platforms, as damage to bottles and valves can be caused.
  • Always display safety and operating notices prominently.
  • Don't change or store bottles in the presence of naked flames.
  • Trace leaks using liquid detergent solution, NEVER a naked flame.
  • Never store or use below ground level, as any leakage will collect at low levels. Storage should be well ventilated, preferably outdoors.
  • Don't use tools to operate bottle valves.
  • Propane bottles should not be used indoors for domestic appliances, due to their higher pressure.
  • Always replace safety caps/plugs when the bottle is empty or not in use.
  • Check hoses regularly. Ensure properly secured with hose clips. If hoses are damaged or showing signs of wear, replace them (using hose of correct quality)
