Gas Safety Trust New Brand Identity

Earlier this month, a new brand identity for the Gas Safety Trust was first unveiled on its new website.Intended to raise the profile of the Trust's new identity and create a central destination where information can be easily accessed about gas safety remit, it is aimed at the many different audiences involved with gas safety, and the information on the website is clear and easy to navigate and understand.Research into gas safety with a particular focus on carbon monoxide is a key priority for the Trust and therefore, is a main focus on the website. Future plans for the site will include news about the many exciting initiatives currently being developed to further the scope of carbon monoxide incidents in the UK, as well as other primary areas of activity such as education and Gas training.In April 2009, CORGI was replaced by Gas Safe Register as the official gas safety body for Great Britain, designed to protect consumers from unsafe gas work by reporting of notifiable gas work, managing inspection and enforcement and providing technical support and standards updates to registered engineers.Only Gas Safe registered engineers are legally allowed to carry out any work on gas appliances and ACS, NVQ and SVQ qualifications are still valid, For engineers with current and valid qualifications, there will be no requirement to retrain or re-sit examinations. If you have experience in the gas industry or related fields you may be able to follow the Nationally Accredited Certification Scheme (ACS) route to registration. This will allow you to gain certificates of competence that are accepted by Gas Safe Register.Many students who have completed their Plumbing qualification training will often progress to undertake gas training as a key additional skillset. Able Skills is an approved CITB training provider for those seriously wishing to gain entry to the Gas Industry, with Gas courses available for New Entrants, Initial Assessment, Re-Assessment and even over the Weekend.
