If you have a need to store LPG gas bottles, used for your camping equipment, make sure that they are in a secure and well ventilated storage area, ideally a separate cage or shed. Bulk LPG tanks should be regularly inspected by the supplier. Refer to the guidance Camping Gas – Guidance on Safe Use for additional guidance on the safe use of LPG.

If you have mains or LPG fitted gas appliances or boilers for heating ensure they are regularly checked and serviced  by a qualified Gas Safe engineer. The recommended interval is annually. Ensure that any recommended remedial actions are carried out promptly. Your premises may use gas heaters. Fit carbon monoxide detectors and check them regularly. You may be using the hall for a sleepover or similar activity. In a tragedy in Spain, 17 young people died from carbon monoxide from a faulty heater while sleeping over at a youth club.
