Gas Safety Week – what does it mean for you?
Did you know that it’s Gas Safety Week? Taking place between 19th and 25th September, this annual safety initiative sees companies from across the UK working together to raise awareness around the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, fires, and explosions.
Whilst gas safety is important all year round, Gas Safety Week (which is coordinated by the Gas Safe Register) provides a platform for the gas industry and consumer organisations to focus all their communications about gas safety. As such, Gas Safety Week draws attention to the need for proper maintenance of gas appliances and the importance of gas safety.
What is the Gas Safe Register?
The Gas Safe Register is a certification body whose purpose is improving and maintaining gas safety to ensure the highest standards are met. They make sure that all gas engineers on the Register are qualified to work with gas, and are able to meet the highest standards
The Gas Safe Register regularly inspects Gas Safe engineers and their establishments, including Jongor, to ensure that the highest of standards are being adhered to.
