Outdoor Grill Safety
Updated On: Dec 27, 2007
Outdoor Grill safety
  • Before using your BBQ for the first time this season, check it thoroughly to ensure that all hoses are clear and firmly attached and that there are no leaks or blockages.
  • Never use water to control grease flare-ups on gas barbeques.
  • Before having a propane cylinder filled, check it for dents, gouges or other signs of disrepair.
  • When having a cylinder filled, it is important to make sure that the cylinder is not overfilled.  Also, check the expiry date, you should never use or refill a cylinder that is older than ten years.
  • Check and make sure all connections are tight BEFORE turning on the gas. Leaks can be detected by dabbing the connections with a solution of soapy water and turning on the gas momentarily. If bubbles occur, there is a leak and it must be fixed before the grill is used.
  • NEVER store spare propane cylinders indoors or near a barbecue, heat source or open flame.
  • Always set up BBQ's in an open area at least 10 feet from any house, shed, fence, tree or any other combustible material, such as leaves or brush. Be aware of the wind blowing sparks.
  • It's a good idea to keep a fire extinguisher within handy reach.
  • To prevent burns use long handled barbecue tools and/or flame retardant mitts.
  • Do not wear loose clothing and watch for dangling apron strings and shirt-tails.
  • NEVER start a gas grill with the lid closed.
  • When using starter fluid make sure to place the can away from the grill before lighting and NEVER add fluid to an already lit grill.
