GAS Appliance Regulations

If your club has a gas barbeque, chip fryer, spit roaster, or any other equipment powered by gas, you MUST understand that there is very strong legislation in Victoria governing the construction and use of these appliances.

The Legislation is enforced by Energy Safe Victoria and you can read all about it on their website.

The document "Safe Use of LPGas at Public Events in Victoria" can be found at this site as well as the safety checklist.

When considering the safety of your equipment, at a minimum, your club needs to talk to your local gasfitter. He/She may not be able to do the certification, but they can be a great source of information and advice.

Please remember, this is as much for your own safety as it is for your customers.
