Today sees the launch of the first Gas Safety Week, 12th – 18th September. It is being run by the Gas Safe Register and aims to raise public awareness of gas safety and encouraging people to take care of gas appliances.
Gas appliances can cause gas leaks, explosions, fires and carbon monoxide poisoning (see our project on Carbon Monoxide Poisoning). Advice from the Gas Safe Register includes making sure you have any gas appliances serviced regularly and have an annual gas safety check and make sure only a Gas Safe registered engineer does any work on your appliances (and check their ID card).
Don’t forget you can always find a plumber or heating engineer via our Find a Tradesman page and you will receive up to 5 free quotes from reliable and insured tradesmen in your area.
