SafeWork NSW has announced a blitz of restaurants, cafes and bakeries using LPG cylinders after a Marrickville baker was critically injured last week.
The 32-year-old baker suffered serious burns to his face, neck and arms following an explosion at the bakery when he attempted to light a portable gas burner.
SafeWork NSW is conducting inspections of food businesses across the state in an effort to prevent further incidents and improve public safety.
SafeWork's Director of Hazardous Chemical Facilities and Safety Management Audits, Meagan McCool, said portable gas appliances presented many risks and they should only be used in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
"All portable gas appliances must be certified in accordance with Australian Standards and approved by a certifier accredited by NSW Fair Trading," Ms McCool said.
"The use of this equipment indoors puts workers and customers at risk of fire, explosion and asphyxia.
"Businesses should only use them in well-ventilated areas, regularly check for leaks and avoid storing them indoors."
Ms McCool said SafeWork inspectors had found many businesses were cutting corners on safety by importing portable gas appliances from overseas.
"These imported appliances do not comply with Australian standards and have not been approved by a certifier accredited by NSW Fair Trading," she said.
"SafeWork is acting now to stop more workers getting injured and prevent customers' lives being put at risk."
SafeWork will visit restaurants, cafés, and outdoor events that use portable LPG cylinders to check they are complying with work health and safety laws, and provide safety advice in relation to the safe use and storage of portable LPG appliances and cylinders.

Gas Energy Australia is proud to announce the release of its Vision for Stationary Energy Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). The Vision outlines the ability of the growing availability of LPG to meet the current environmental challenges in the energy market and a strategy to enhance its place in Australia's energy mix. Gas Energy Australia's CEO, John Griffiths said "Australia is tackling multiple challenges with increasing energy demand, near total dependence on foreign fuels and growing concerns about the environment.
As a cleaner, cheaper and available Australian source of energy, LPG has the potential to play a vital role in addressing these issues." The Vision highlights the numerous applications of LPG in the stationary energy sector including home and water heating, recreational use and powering industries including agriculture and manufacturing. In addition, LPG produces significantly less CO2, particulates and other pollutants compared with conventional fuels currently used in Australia. "Part of the challenge is that governments and the community aren't aware of the many uses and benefits of LPG.
This has led to policies which disadvantage LPG such as the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) grants program and the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme that subsidise other energy technologies." "Our Vision's 10 Point Action Plan will guide GEA's future work in ensuring LPG can continue to meet the needs of communities, improve Australia's energy security and contribute to Australian governments' environmental and air quality objectives.
This will involve engaging with the community and key politicians about the important role LPG can play in energy policies," Mr Griffiths said. "We are hopeful that our work will enable the LPG industry to contribute to a cleaner and more secure energy mix for Australia." Copies of the Vision document will be made available at the upcoming World LPG Association Oceania Regional
