The Gas Safe Register replaces Corgi
If you’re having any work done that involves tampering with your domestic gas supply, or the gas supply in your place of work, it’s important to ensure that the engineers carrying out the work are officially Gas Safe registered. For the avoidance of doubt the Gas Safe Register is the organisation that officially replaced Corgi.
Anyone working with the gas should be Gas Safe registered
A family in Croydon had commissioned a local building company to construct an extension to their property. The work involved installing new gas fittings, and the family no doubt assumed that the contractors they had hired were Gas Safe registered. However, they should have checked. They weren’t!
Gas Safe Register inspection finds many faults
After experiencing problems with the operation of the gas appliances, the family called in a Gas Safe inspector to check out the installation. The inspector found 2 defects which he classed as being “immediate risk”; 4 others which he classed as being “at risk”, plus a further 6 that were deemed to be substandard.
Building contractor prosecuted by HSE
Several other sub standard installations were found at other addresses in the region. The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) prosecuted the contractor for being in breach of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.
Double checking an engineer’s gas safe registered ID
To be on the safe side it is not sufficient to merely inspect an engineer’s gas safe register registration card. It could be a forgery, or the engineer’s registration could have been cancelled. It’s best to visit the Gas Safe Register website where you can check out the serial number on the engineer’s ID to ensure that it is still current.
