Health and Safety

At Countrywide LPG we put Health & Safety first and we will prioritise the health and safety of ourselves and others above all else, without exception.

LPG is very safe when handled and transported correctly, however as a flammable fuel there’s a potential for hazard and harm. It is therefore essential for us to maintain the highest safety standards.
Our Health & Safety policies are written in close consideration with the Codes of Practice provided by UKLPG.

UKLPG is the trade association that represents companies operating in the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) industry in the UK such as ourselves.
It is dedicated to the safe and effective development of LPG, with a focus on LPG’s role in providing low carbon heat and energy for homes and business off the mains gas grid, whilst also helping to improve air quality in urban areas.

As well as regulations governing the handling of LPG, we also carry a legal obligation for the health and wellbeing of our staff – especially our drivers, engineers and plant operatives. Harsh winter weather can heighten the risk of injury as our team strive to get deliveries through to customers.

Safety Information

  • Tank Installation and Service
    All fixed gas appliances must, by law, be installed and maintained by Gas Safe Registered installers. If you are looking for an installer to carry out any of this work you can search for a local one on the Gas Safe Register or get in touch with Countrywide.
  • Carbon Monoxide Safety
    Carbon Monoxide is a poisonous gas that can be released from any carbon based fuel if the appliance used is not properly installed or maintained. Ensure you have a CO alarm fitted to warn you of any issues before you feel nauseous or dizzy. Left unchecked Carbon Monoxide can ultimately lead to death. See the website Carbon Monoxide Be Alarmed for more details.
  • Control of Major Accident Hazard (COMAH) Regulations
    Although LPG can be dangerous, establishments such as ours are strictly regulated under the Control of Major Accident Hazard (COMAH) Regulations 2015 and have to manage the activities in a way which minimise risks to workers and the public. The likelihood and consequences of harm at COMAH establishments are required to be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable by design, control, mitigation and emergency procedures.
