Green Town Lp Gas > Safety Tips


People all around the world use LPG safely every day for their cooking, heating, driving, camping and many other uses. To help ensure a safe environment while using LPG, LPG companies share the following brief safety tips with customers:

  • LPG can be detected by a typically unpleasant odour of gas
  • There are special tanks which are specifically designed for use underground
  • LPG will cause natural rubber and some plastics to deteriorate. Only use hoses and other equipment specifically designed for LPG
  • LPG is flammable like all petroleum fuels. It must be stored away from sources of ignition and in a well-ventilated area
  • LPG vapour is heavier than air. Any leakage will sink to the ground and accumulate in low lying areas
  • LPG expands rapidly when the temperature rises. So whenever a container is filled, sufficient space is left for expansion
  • Although LPG is non-toxic, it is an asphixiant and its abuse is highly dangerous. Treat LPG with respect



  • Thermo-seal is in the appropriate place.
  • Safety Cap is in the appropriate place.
  • If a regulator is not attached to the cylinder, the Safety Cap must be used.
  • Cylinder must always be positioned upright.
  • Cylinders must not be stored in Kitchen Cabinets or any enclosed spaces.
Guideline to attach cylinders to the stove

LP Gas cylinders must be checked for leakage with soap water, keeping the regulator attached.
