Be Safe! Always use a Gas Safe Registered engineer. The Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances. It’s important that you don’t try to fit, fix or move gas appliances such as your boiler or cooker yourself. Only Gas Safe registered engineers have the right skills to do this safely. Gas Safe registered engineers retrain regularly to ensure they are up-to-date with new technology and appliances.  Gas Safe Register ™ produces useful advice on “Gas Safety Tips” to help you stay safe in your home all year round. Click here to check out their 10 top tips.

If you’re planning on home improvement work follow these top tips:

  • No matter how big or small the home improvement job, find out if it will involve gas work and only use a Gas Safe registered engineer.
  • If you’re using a builder or project manager to employ the gas fitter don’t rely on them to check their credentials. Check yourself to make sure they are registered and qualified to work safely on gas.

For Landlords: Running a property can be a stressful business. But are you aware of your legal gas safety duties as a landlord? Every year, landlords are conned by illegal gas workers who perform poor gas work, causing serious illness and death of tenants. And if it’s your property, it’s your responsibility. Find out what your gas safety duties are.

For Tenants: Being a tenant means there’s always a landlord responsible for the safety of the gas appliances. But when was the last time you saw your landlord’s gas safety record? If your gas appliances have not been safety checked within the last year, you could be in danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. Here’s how to find out whether your property is gas safe now.

For Students: be aware of your rights! Student accommodation can be great fun, but to avoid gas dangers that could kill you, ask to see your landlord’s current gas safety record. By law, your landlord must provide you with a copy of their landlord’s gas safety record to ensure the safety of you and your housemates. The great news is it won’t cost you a penny and it could save your life! Find out about your gas safety rights here.
