Keep gas safety at the top of your agenda

By James Brown

Summer is typically a time when the barbecue is put to good use, but Queenslanders are being reminded to ensure their appliances are as safe as possible.

"Portable gas stoves, refrigerators and barbecues will be used at the beach, campsites or just in the backyard as families and friends get together to celebrate," said natural resources minister Andrew Cripps.

He revealed that gas cylinders can become dangerous unless they're treated properly, which is why people need to make sure they know what they're doing.

Spending just 5 minutes checking them over alongside appliances can save a lot of hassle for residents of real estate in Elimbah – and possibly even their lives.

Among the recommendations from the government is to check barbecue fittings for any sign of wear and tear, as well as any O ring seals that might be missing.

It's essential to always follow the manufacturer's instructions for assembling, connecting and disconnecting gas cylinders – even if you think you might know better yourself!

Another top tip if you're getting the barbecue out this New Year is to ensure the gas ignites straight away, and you should also avoid using insect sprays in the vicinity.
