Gas Safety Week 16 – 22 September 2019
Gas Safety Week is an annual safety week to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances. It is co-ordinated by Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on your gas appliances.
Meet 'The Safety Squad' – Doug, Aisha, Bob, Leon and Olivia. Together they represent the everyday gas engineers who help keep us gas safe in our homes every day and fight to keep the nation safe.
The Safety Squad feature on Gas Safe Register's Gas Safety Week literature and are part of the package of messages and material being used by Gas Safe registered engineers and organisations to communicate and promote Gas Safety Week.
During the week thousands of supporters will be encouraging the pubic to get their appliances safety checked at least once a year. If left unchecked, poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. To help you remember when your appliances are due a check, sign up to a free reminder service at the Gas Safe Register website, and use the interactive gas map to see how many unsafe gas appliances are lurking in your area.
Follow these few simple checks to stay safe:
- Check your gas appliances every year. Gas appliances should be safety checked once a year and serviced regularly by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Tenants – make sure your landlord arranges this.
- Check your engineer is Gas Safe registered. You can find and check an engineer at the Gas Safe Register website or call 0800 408 5500.
- Check your engineer's Gas Safe Register ID card. Make sure they are qualified for the work you need doing. You can find this information on the back of the card.
Stay safe and help your loved ones stay safe in their homes too.
