BCGA issues fire safety guidance update

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

New fire safety guidance for the waste and recycling industry has been released by The British Compressed Gases Association (BCGA).

The L6 Cylinders in Fires leaflet offers a visual guide to the steps to take in the event of a fire-related incident.

It includes information on flammable gases, post fire actions and provides gas company emergency contact numbers.

Doug Thornton, chief executive of the BCGA, said: “Cylinders are designed to keep gas stored safely, but they can become vulnerable in the extreme circumstances of a fire.

"L6 has been developed in a format which makes it easy to be placed on noticeboards and other areas where the information can be easily viewed, understood and, in the unlikely event of an incident, by acted quickly upon."
