BBQ safety

Barbecues have to be one of the best ways of enjoying good weather and socialising with friends and family.When it’s sunny the barbecues come out and we often see an increase in barbecue related incidents. Make sure you stay safe this summer time by looking when you cook!

  • Never leave a barbecue unattended, especially when there are children or pets around
  • Make sure your barbecue is well away from sheds, fences, trees, shrubs or garden waste
  • Only light a barbecue with appropriate fuels, NEVER use petrol or white spirit
  • Always keep water nearby
  • Enjoy yourself but don’t drink too much if you are in charge of a barbecue
