The legal framework

Any business which operates an LPG installation has responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Etc Act (HSWA) 1974 and the subsidiary legislation outlined below to ensure that the installation is safe to operate and does not present a risk to their employees and members of the public.

Because some of the duties in relation to the storage tank may be addressed by its supplier, it is important for the user to work closely with their supplier in assessing and addressing any risks.
