GAS LEAK

Gas leaks can be dangerous for your employees, and detrimental to your business as a whole. Not only are they a health risk for those that are working with you, but they are also a danger for your business premises as well.

The problem with gas leaks is that they can happen in any building, at any time. If you smell a gas leak, whether it’s in a public place or your own home, don’t ignore it. As with many gas leaks, when they become apparent in the home, the stream of gas is, in fact, flammable. This means that if there is a flame of a spark in the area of the leak, it can cause a fire or an explosion.

Causes of Gas Leaks

Gas leaks can occur from a variety of causes. For example, gas leaks can happen if a gas pipe is damaged, such as when an underground gas line is accidentally broken. Most commonly, gas leaks in the home can result due to faulty, poorly fitted or badly maintained appliances, such as boilers, heaters and cookers. Thus, it’s vital that you undertake the appropriate leak detection steps to ensure your home is safe, which can be difficult without the right tools and experience. For example, it is always a good idea to have your older appliances serviced by a professional, as they are also a common cause of gas leaks.

HOW YOU CAN DETECT A GAS LEAK
  • Smell of gas or rotten eggs
