gas safety week logoGas Safety Week is an important opportunity for the gas industry to highlight important safety issues inherent in the use of gas powered equipment.

Gas appliances which have been fitted incorrectly or badly serviced can cause a range of problems such as fires, carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks or even explosive reactions.

According to Gas Safe Register estimates (based on research carried out in 2009), a quarter of a million illegal gas jobs could be carried out annually across the UK.

Everyone from the public to consumer organisations, retailers, manufacturers and installers are encouraged to get involved.

If you’d like to pledge your support and register with the gas safe register’s campaign, you can do so here.

Millions of UK households and businesses rely on gas services for their day to day operation. Whether it is heating, cooking or manufacturing processes, the gas appliances we rely on need to be checked each year to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently.

Most commercial clients will be aware of their legal obligations when it comes to gas appliance safety and have their equipment tested and maintained annually. Landlords, Housing associations, Local authorities, Hotels and B&Bs, Colleges, Boarding schools and Hostels are all businesses which have a strong and well known legal responsibility to their clients.  Any gas equipment used for business must be serviced or checked annually.
