Safety precautions for PNG


  • Every morning, before you turn on your gas stove, make it a habit to open all doors and windows. Since gas is lighter than air, it would disperse immediately in case of any leakage and avoid any incidents of fire or explosions
  • If you can smell gas or doubt a leakage, do not ignite a match or lighter. Close the main control valve and call the IOAGPL Emergency helpline – Number
  • If the leakage is observed in the PE (Poly-ethylene) line, inform IOAGPL company representative immediately and do not allow any vehicles near the leakage point
  • Inform the IOAGPL representative if any digging/ construction work is being done on the gas line
  • Always close your gas tap before you go to bed at night
  • Always ensure the rubber tube fits correctly
  • Never use non-standard or unauthorised tubes; we only recommend rubber tube supplied/ approved by the gas company.
  • Always close the main control valve if you are not going to be home for a day or more
  • When you turn on your gas again after a long duration, make sure all the doors and windows of your house are open
  • Always use standard ISI mark stoves and burners
  • Always ensure that the hot utensils or liquids are not in direct contact with your rubber tube
  • When you are cooking, make sure that you do not leave the burner or stove unattended
  • Once you complete your cooking, make sure you close the burner knob and gas tap
  • If the gas supply stops suddenly, close the knob and open all doors and windows. Only once there is no smell of gas should you turn on the stove again
  • It is safe to wear cotton apron or cotton clothes during cooking
  • Never use a sari to lift any utensils from the stove
  • It is always safer to ignite a match first, and then to switch on the gas supply
  • Keep children away from the gas stove and gas connection
  • Checking the rubber tube for any cuts, damage regularly
  • Never store combustible or explosive/ flammable items in the kitchen
  • When you are cleaning the burner – close the main valve and gas tap; allow the stove to cool down and then clean the burners with a cloth; clean the burners with warm water and use soap or other cleaning agents if the burner is oily; allow the burner to dry up; clean the burner head in the similar way; clean the burner head with a hard brush
