Grilling Safety

June 30, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

More people grill in July than any other month. While grilling is all about good food, fun, friends and celebrations, it is important to make sure that accidents don’t interrupt your activities. Approximately half of the injuries involving grills are thermal burns. If you work with fire, there’s a chance of getting burned.
• Only use BBQ grills outdoors and in ventilated areas.
• Place the grill away from home or anything that could be flammable.

• Keep grill stable.
• Keep fire under control.
• Keep children away from grill.
• Never leave the grill unattended.
• The grill lid should always be open before lighting it.
• Grease should not be allowed to build up in the grill.
• Use long-handled utensils.

Gas/Propane
• Check the tank hose and connections for leaks before using it for the first time each year by using a light soapy water solution to see if bubbles appear.
• If you smell gas when the grill is lit, move away from the grill and call the fire department.
• If the flame goes out, turn off the gas for 15 minutes and open the lid before re-lighting it.

Charcoal
• Never add any starter fluid or other flammable liquid to a fire.
• Only use charcoal starter fluid and not gasoline, kerosene or other flammable liquid.
• Keep starter fluid away from heat sources and out of reach of children.
• Electric charcoal starters do not use fire but have a coil to ignite the coals.
• When finished cooking, close off the grill vents to suffocate the fire and save some of the remaining charcoal.

Practice safe grilling and enjoy the occasions to cook outdoors and share with your family and friends.
