Antrim Borough Council is working in partnership with the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland to raise awareness of the risks associated with underground metallic pipework.

The initiative will be looking specifically at the corrosion of underground metallic pipework and the associated dangers of allowing Liquid Petroleum Gas to escape.

Helen Harper, Senior Environmental Health Officer with Antrim Borough Council, said: “A letter and leaflet will be sent to businesses from their current LPG supplier and inspectors from the Council’s Environmental Health team and HSENI will visit premises where underground pipework may be in place. This is to ensure that should there be a problem, steps can be taken to address it.”
