The Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register. It replaces the old CORGI certificate.
Before any gas work is carried out always check to ensure that the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing by asking to see a Gas Safe Register ID card, which will be carried by all Gas Safe Registered engineers.
If you suspect anyone to be working illegally report them to us. If you have had gas work done in your property in the last six months, you can nominate it for a free gas safety inspection.
Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly with no warning.
Protect yourself from the dangers by following these simple steps:
– Only use a Gas Safe registered engineer to fit, fix or service your appliances
– Get your gas appliances regularly serviced and safety checked every year
– Fit an audible carbon monoxide alarm
– Check for warning signs such as lazy yellow flames or black marks or stains around the appliance.
– Know the six main signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning – headaches, dizziness, nausea, breathlessness, collapse and loss of consciousness.
