Working with gas

Working with gas doesn’t have to be dangerous if you follow the rules for installations.

Rules for gas installation

  • Copper piper going through a wall, must be sleeved
  • An approved flexible gas hose may be more than 2 meters long.
  • A hose may not go through any partition or wall.
  • The Machinery and Occupational Safety Act of 1993 requires buildings to hold a certificate of compliance for any electrical and gas installations.
