Commercial kitchens based in Coventry will be visited by health and safety officers following incidents of exploding ovens.

Roughly 2,000 catering facilities in the city will be looked at in order to guarantee that businesses are adhering to the latest gas safety regulations, reports the Coventry Telegraph.

Two serious incidents revolving around Tandoori oven explosions have taken place in the West Midlands over recent years, with health and safety officials discovering that many owners were unaware of their legal obligations regarding such equipment.

Companies that do not abide by regulations will not only be placing their workers' safety in jeopardy, but could also be hit by substantial fines.

Councillor Phil Townshend, Coventry City Council’s cabinet member for community safety, said: "If catering businesses fail to have their gas appliances correctly installed and maintained by a Gas Safe registered engineer they run the risk of their employees and themselves being injured."ADNFCR-2754-ID-801427264-ADNFCR
