A Key to Protecting Your Business: Propane Gas Grill Safety Tips

               Summer is grilling time but accidents can happen. More than 5,000 grill fires take place on properties each year, according to the U.S Fire Administration. Here are some barbecue safety tips for a safe and fun barbecue season:
  • Always inspect your fuel line, burners and igniter to make sure they are in good condition, with no cracks or leaks. Cracks and leaks can be identified by spraying soapy water on hoses and connections. A pervasive smell of gas or an irregular flame gas may also signal a leak or crack.
  • The grill assembly should be checked to insure insects (or other critters) have not nested there, clogging up the grill. 
  • Set up your grill in an open area, away from buildings and combustible materials.
  • Never grill indoors.
  • Operate your barbeque on a level surface.
  • Keep the grill in the shade. The sun increases the pressure in the tank, which can lead to leaks.
  • Wear a heavy apron and/or oven mitts that reach high on the forearm.
  • Don’t wear baggy clothing while grilling.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s lighting instructions, and with all grill models, keep the lid open and do not lean over the grill when lighting it.
  • Keep children and pets away from the grill.
  • Keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
  • Remember: the grill will remain hot for a while after cooking. Do not cover or store the grill until it has cooled down.
