Bunnings Warehouse management have told charity groups to put onion on bread before the sausage or sauce due to OH&S concerns.

“Safety is always our No 1 priority and we recently introduced a suggestion that onion be placed underneath sausages to help prevent the onion from falling out and creating a slipping hazard,” said Bunnings’ chief operating officer, Debbie Poole.

“Regardless of how you like your onion and snag, we are confident this new serving suggestion will not impact the delicious taste or great feeling you get when supporting your local community group,” Ms Poole said.

The “friendly recommendation” has been provided in the “sausage sizzle welcome pack” to community and charity groups that run the fundraisers.

Many people questioned the decision, asking whether anyone has actually ever slipped on onion? If so, wouldn’t the sausage and sauce be a slipping hazard also?

Is it Un-Australian?

  • I hate onions on my sausage sanga. guess that makes me “un-Australian” too?


  • I like my onion on top of my sausage and then sauce – have never ever slipped!

    • But in the scheme of things – will take a yummy hot sausage sizzle however it comes.


  • It doesn’t make a difference really. Plus I think it’s WHS not OH&S these days.


  • For me it doesn’t make any difference.


  • It seems strange that they have to offer this advice. Hardly ” un-Australian” though.


  • Yess I hate choosing onions because thy constantly fall out and make a mess. I’m all for it


  • This is the world we live in. Won’t stop someone from deliberately dropping the onion to ‘slip’ on it and sue Bunnings for lots of $$$s. Sausage or onion first on the bread, makes no difference to the taste, stop whinging peeps


  • It is much the same,no big deal!


  • It’s un-australian to waste a Bunnings sausage with onion lol don’t drop any!


  • People create these situations by suing all the time if you don’t want to be nannied don’t look to blame and sue everytime something happens.


  • Lol still the same ingredients on the bread, just different order. It’s not going to make a difference to your tastebuds people.


  • I can’t believe this is news, I don’t think it makes a difference nor does it matter.
