Meet our Gas Safe Registered Engineers
Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI in Great Britain and the Isle of Man. The register exists to protect you, your family, and your property from dangerous gas work.
By law, anyone carrying out work on gas installations and appliances in your home must be on the Gas Safe Register. Be gas safe – always use a Gas Safe registered engineer. Always ask to see their Gas Safe Register ID card.
Never DIY with gas
Last year, 14 people died from CO poisoning related to gas and, 234 people suffered serious health problems. Be gas safe in your home and never DIY with gas, even if you think it might save you money.
If someone other than a Gas Safe registered engineer does the gas work in your home, you could be risking the safety of your family and your property.
If gas appliances are incorrectly fitted, badly repaired, or poorly maintained, they can produce carbon monoxide which can kill.
Make sure that you always use a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out gas work and service appliances in your home.
Check the engineers I.D card.
Always ask the Engineer at your door if you can see his Gas Safe Identification Card which looks like the one below.
Make sure the Company Name is the same as the one you are employing and make sure that the card date is valid. Always turn the card over to check the details on the back of the card.
From the back of the card, you can see the categories of work that the engineer is qualified to do. There are two columns headed Gas and LPG. If he is at your property to work on your gas fire and you have gas bottles of a gas tank in the garden, look down the left-hand column to Fires and then look across to the column headed LPG to see if a date appears and that the date has not expired. If it is all correct, you are safe to let him continue.
Don't forget........You can be liable to a fine if you let someone work on your gas installation without them being qualified.
Never ask an engineer to do private work.
An engineer is only qualified and insured if he is engaged on work instructed by the Company employing him.
