In terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Pressure Equipment Regulations, only Registered LP Gas Installers can install and maintain LP Gas installations. The LPGas Safety Association promotes safety in the industry and to this end presents a variety of training courses to cover all needs.
Mandated by the Department of Labour, the LPGas Safety Association ensures that “all” LPGas Installers in this Industry, are competent and work to the required South African National Standards, to ensure they work safety and ensure their installations are safe.
LP Gas is classified as a "hazardous substance". It is such an efficient form of energy, and has a high calorific value. LPG "must" be handled and used with care. We encourage manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users to adhere to the safety regulations, that have been put in place to ensure end user and public safety. As such, the LPGSASA have put in place several schemes to assist with LP Gas safety, as well as information and guides in terms of using LP Gas safely.
