At Able Skills training centre we take gas safety very seriously. We prepare our training Gas Engineers for Gas Safe Registration. Being on the register is a legal requirement here in the UK for anybody looking to work with gas appliances.
The Gas Safe Register host an awareness week every year! This year the event will be running between the 13th - 19th of September 2021. The purpose is to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances.
What is the importance of Gas Safety Week?
People do not tend to worry themselves about the importance of Gas Safety within their homes. So, the Gas Safe Register do their part every year to raise awareness around the topic. Gas is unstable in unsafe hands, in fact, over 80% of UK adults at risk of missing ‘hangover like’ carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms!
Findings like this are particularly concerning. Figures suggest that 5.5 million homes in the UK are known to have unsafe gas appliances. Giving the public more insight on the subject and how to remain safe at home is important. The Gas Safe Register also provide guidance for Gas Engineers and carry out their own investigations on reports of illegal gas work.
