The preliminary consultation into the recommendations of the Gill Report on the 2004 ICL Plastics explosion: Effect on the supply and use of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) in Great Britain and the wider health and safety system.

LPG Consultation Homepage

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has published a consultation document on the recommendations that emerged from the Public Inquiry held by Lord Gill into the explosion at ICL Plastics in 2004 (Link - ICL Enquiry).

This consultation is the first part of the HSE response to the Inquiry report and will enable interested parties and stakeholders to provide their initial views on the principles within the recommendations.

The Inquiry report proposes a new safety regime for the use of LPG in industrial and commercial premises, though some of the recommendations would apply more widely.

We are therefore seeking the views from the suppliers and users of LPG and also from stakeholders in the health and safety system.

The consultative document is issued by the Health and Safety Executive in compliance with its general duty to consult under section 50(3) of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974.
