Fire Safety - Electronic Cigarettes


Electronic cigarettes are used as an alternative to traditional cigarettes, however whilst the effects of inhaling the vapour may be different, they are still a potential ignition source and when using oxygen, have the same potential fire risk as traditional cigarettes.

This ignition source can be either from the heating element, the battery within the electronic cigarette, or more often the charging device.

If you do use an Electronic cigarette remember safety first:

  • Never use electronic cigarettes or smoke tobacco cigarettes where medical oxygen is in use
  • Never leave e-cigarettes on charge or unattended for long periods
  • Never charge over night
  • Never charge near to or on combustible or flammable materials
  • Never mix components of different e-cigarettes
  • Always use the charger supplied
  • Always ensure you purchase your e-cigarette from a reputable source
  • Always check the e-cigarette carries CE certification
  • Always follow the manufacturer’s guidance supplied with the device
  • Contact Trading Standards over any e-cigarette safety concerns.
