In 2018, following a spate of incidents and injuries, ESV briefed DPR&Co to develop a campaign that would demonstrate the risk of fire from leaking gas connections between barbeques and gas cylinders (the principal cause of fires). The imperative was to make the necessary preventative steps simple and clear. The campaign is set to reprise across the 2021/22 summer period and has also been adopted by the Queensland Government for deployment in 2021.
