It’s Better to be Safe than Sorry



To promote the safe, efficient and economic benefits of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, as a modern fuel, to enrich the lives of all.

The Liquefied Petroleum Gas Safety Association of Southern Africa (LPGSASA is an organisation which represents the many companies involved in the refining, distribution, retailing and installation of LPGas and LPGas appliances and equipment.

Formed in 1987, the Association is a Section 21 company, which has no commercial agenda. To this end, the LPGSASA continuously interfaces with the relevant bodies, industry players, stakeholders, government departments, the media and the public – on the industry’s behalf –  on matters of safety, best industry practice and the promotion of LPGas as an alternative fuel.

The LPGSASA goes to great lengths to stay at the forefront of the various technologies and global developments. By participating, actively, in international forums the Association shares and exchanges skills, knowledge and expertise. It learns from and directly applies that shared knowledge, to the ultimate benefit of the industry and its people.

Part of the LPGSASA’s strategy is to engage with government, distributors and consumers on relevant issues such as regulation, installation and safety. Key stakeholders include the: Department of Energy, Department of Labour, Department of Trade and Industry and the Department of Environmental Affairs and extends to include the Departments of Health, Housing and Education.

Working closely with these departments the LPGSASA has achieved a number of important and safety related milestones including the Safe Appliance Scheme, the verification of LPGas cylinders and the registration of LPGas Installers.

Safe Appliance Scheme and LPGas Installers

To encourage ongoing safety within the industry, the LPGSASA develops and institutes training programmes and courses to cover a wide field of applications and activities. Standard courses are held, regularly, in Gauteng, KwaZulu Natal and Western Cape while custom courses can be specifically developed to meet requirements.

LPGas is an exceptional energy source due to its origin, benefits and application. As a clean, lower carbon, efficient and innovative energy, it offers benefits to consumers, industry and the environment. Equally important, it is available for immediate access and use.
