Gas safety guidance during COVID-19 outbreak - Regularly updated guidance for gas engineers, landlords and tenants during the COVID-19 outbreak is available on both the HSE website and the Gas Safe Register website.
Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) regulators - Following a number of serious incidents, HSE wants to remind members of the public who use LPG, and registered gas engineers working with it, of industry guidance which addresses the potential dangers of using LPG regulators without over pressure protection.
Failure of these regulators can allow dangerously high pressure gas to reach appliances which are not capable of containing it. Regulators over 10 years old, or where the age is uncertain, should be replaced; it is recommended that the replacement regulator should incorporate over pressure protection.
It is also important that regulators are positioned so that water cannot enter through the vent hole.
