Cold Weather Safety Tips

Winter is here!
Here are some top tips for heater safety:

Follow warning labels on all heating appliances

Turn off all heating devices when leaving the house

Allow for at least 1 metre clearance around the heater

Anchor heater to wall or floor, if possible

Keep heater away from flammable materials such as curtains and carpets

Use guards for fireplaces and heaters

If your gas heater has a bad odour or a sooty and/or yellow flame stop using it and get it professionally serviced.


Do not use outdoor heaters or charcoal heaters inside. These are extremely dangerous and could cause carbon monoxide (gas) poisoning. For more information visit Product Safety Australia.

Remember to check your fire alarms and replace batteries if needed.
