Gas is commonly used in homes across New Zealand for heating and cooking. While gas is instant, reliable and efficient it can be dangerous. WorkSafe are running a campaign to help Kiwi’s use gas safely.

If you smell gas indoors, don’t muck around – take the following action:

  • put out flames or cigarettes
  • turn off gas appliances
  • open door and windows
  • and if the smell persists leave the house, go outside and call 111.
