Common Questions

Safe Use of LPG

I run a factory. Who is responsible for the LP Gas pipework between the LP Gas tank and the factory?

You are. As with internal pipework, the LP Gas pipework between the LP Gas tank and the factory is the property of the consumer. Pipework does not have an unlimited life and steel pipework in particular will eventually deteriorate and leak. Such a leak may result in a fire or explosion if the LP Gas accumulates and an ignition source is present. In order to ensure the continued safe operation it needs to be inspected and, in due course, replaced. HSE has published a leaflet "Checking LP Gas pipework - industrial and commercial user responsibilities" (see http://www.hse.gov.uk/gas/domestic/lpgpipework.pdf ) giving more guidance.
