LPG Safety

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a safe, clean and convenient fuel; however it should be handled with care.

  • LPG vapor is heavier than air and in case of leakage it collects at low levels; therefore LPG cylinders should not be stored in cellars or pits.
  • LPG is stored in cylinders in liquid form and comes out of the cylinders in gaseous form. LPG liquid expands about 270 times to become gas – therefore cylinders should not be tilted or stored in horizontal position to avoid any leakage from the valve.
  • LPG is highly flammable. It must be stored away from sources of ignition in a well-ventilated space.
  • LPG leak can be detected by its pungent smell.
  • Always keep the LPG cylinders in a vertical position with the valve on top.
  • LPG cylinders must be within easy access for easy removal in case of a gas leak or a fire.
