To ensure community safety and pipeline protection First Gas (and its approved contractors) needs to access the pipeline easement for various inspection and maintenance activities. First Gas also provides approval for a range of works on or directly adjacent to pipeline easements.

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, First Gas, and farm owners and growers are classified as a PCBU (Person conducting a business or undertaking) and both First Gas and the property owner have various safety obligations for the care of people undertaking activities on the land.
