Are there rules regarding the caging of gas bottles in the Western Cape Province?

Posted on: March 11th, 2016 by STBBSiteOwner

Home gas appliances have of late become very popular and with Eskom’s continued problems adding incentive to do so, this will undoubtedly remain the case. From the legislature’s point of view, gas installations must comply with prescribed safety standards and for this purpose, regulations have been issued under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to which gas installations generally, including in residential homes, must comply.

The question whether all gas bottles must be caged is not addressed in the regulations. There are, however, general safety guidelines in the industry and specifically in the Western Cape.
