The Gas Works – Safety Tips from Gas Installers Cape Town

COVID-19 is a virus which presented itself in humans for the first time during the late months of 2019 and has since spread on a global scale.

There is much concern regarding the further spread and transmission of the virus in South Africa, and it has therefore become important for us to educate ourselves on how to stay safe from infection.

Our registered gas installers are taking every precaution to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 and would like to encourage our clients to do the same.

Therefore, we have put together some important facts and information related to the coronavirus and how to prevent the spread of infection.

Coronavirus Safety Tips from our Gas Installers

Sanitise Your Hands and Surfaces

Airborne microorganisms such as COVID-19 are easily spread via physical contact with others, as well as surfaces that infected individuals have touched.

Therefore, it’s crucial that you wash or sanitise your hands and surrounding surfaces on a regular basis.

This includes your gas oven installations, kitchen surfaces and other working surfaces that you make use of on a daily basis.

Social Distancing

As far as possible, we must avoid social gatherings, meetings and other public places which may increase our risk of infection.

Because this isn’t always possible, when we are in public spaces, we must try remain a safe distance of at least one meter from any person who is sneezing or coughing.


When sneezing or coughing, it’s important to do so into the inside of our elbows, or into a tissue which should be disposed of immediately into a closed bin.

Avoid Physical Contact

When greeting someone, avoid shaking hands or hugging. Instead, keep a distance of at least one meter and share greetings from a distance.

Should you accidentally come into physical contact with someone, whether they are showing symptoms or not, wash or sanitise your hands immediately.

Seek Medical Care

If you are experiencing any symptoms, or if you suspect you have come into contact with an infected person, seek medical care immediately.

In doing so, you can be sure of your status and are then able to take the necessary steps to avoid infecting others.

In addition, it’s important to isolate yourself from loved ones and general public spaces until you have been tested.

Avoid Touching Your Face

Because viruses enter easily through the eyes, nose and mouth, it’s absolutely crucial to avoid touching your face as far as possible.

Boost Your Immune System

Taking immune boosters is an extra precautionary measure, which can help your body fight off infections more easily.

At this stage, your body may need all the help it can get in terms of preventing infection, especially because those with compromised immune systems are more susceptible to contracting the virus.

Coronavirus Signs and Symptoms

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are the following:

  • Tight chest and difficulty breathing
  • Fever
  • Tiredness
  • Body aches and pains
  • Nasal congestion
