LP Gas Safety – If You Smell it, Switch it Off!

Fact: Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) is an excellent fuel for heating, cooking and for automotive use. LPG cylinders are safe if used correctly. However, if stored or used incorrectly, LPG can be extremely dangerous.

LPG smell:

Suppliers make LPG smell as an extra precaution, to help people detect gas in the event of a leak.

The smell is a strong and disagreeable odor that resembles rotten eggs.

If you smell LPG, you should switch off your gas bottle immediately as LPG is flammable.

Sometimes gas can lose its smell. You can help to prevent this by using and storing your LPG cylinders correctly.

Cylinders used for household purposes must not be filled with automotive LPG (Autogas).

Never use LPG indoors or in a confined space.

Do not connect or disconnect cylinders in the vicinity of a naked flame.

Do not use LPG in windy conditions i.e. more than 10km per hour.

Do not use undue force to open or close the main cylinder valve.

Always keep cool and away from flames, sparks and heat.

When operating your gas bottle, always read the manufacturer’s operating instructions.


Cylinders should be stored outside in a well ventilated area, be carried and stored upright at all times.

Do not store or use petrol, flammable liquids or aerosols near LPG cylinders.

Ensure valves are turned off firmly when not in use.

Pressure relief valves should face away from dwellings and combustible materials where possible.
