Need for approved gas workers emphasised by ?

Gas workers who have taken a course and have approved qualifications could be in high demand in the Lincolnshire area after a man who posed as an accredited tradesperson was fined £900.

According to This is Lincolnshire, Monty Alexander Brittain pretended to be a Corgi registered worker - before it was replaced by the Gas Safe Register - and proceeded to fit a boiler using the wrong pipe, which could have been extremely dangerous.

He pleaded guilty to three charges of breaching gas safety regulations, was fined £900 and ordered to pay £650 in damages.

Jo Anderson, Health and Safety Executive inspector, commented: "Anyone employed or self-employed working on gas appliances in domestic premises must be a Gas Safe Registered engineer and competent in that area of gas work."

The Gas Safe Register replaced Corgi on April 1st and ensures that the 120,000 workers on the register carry out their work to a sufficient standard.
