As we are in the height of summer (apparently), there is little doubt that you will host or be invited to a BBQ at some point over the coming weeks. Along with troublesome trips to supermarkets for your multi-pack of burger buns, these times can often come with serious safety implications. Here at MacDonald Martin, we have come up a few tips to help you enjoy your BBQ safely:

  • Ensure your BBQ is placed well away from any combustible objects, for example fences and chairs
  • If you aren’t using disposable BBQ’s, ensure that you have fully cleaned out the BBQ from your last use
  • Make sure there is someone attending the BBQ at all times
  • Ensure children and pets are kept well away
  • Keep BBQ lighters and matches out of the reach of children
  • Use long handled utensils
  • Wear fire resistant gloves
  • Keep a garden hose/ bucket of water nearby in case of fire
  • Ensure BBQ coals are cool before disposing of them

So with that in mind, we hope you have a great grillin’ time! Sausages at the ready!
