Understanding for potential safety events – network water ingress into gas pipes (December 2002)

Representatives from both sectors have met with gas experts in the Health and Safety Executive to agree workable priority action should network water get into gas pipes in such a manner as to disrupt service. This Note records that agreement and helps us all to consolidate and improve protection.

We do however believe that a significant step forward has been made for health and safety in the United Kingdom. Occasional Guidance Note
