Not gas safe registered?


We teach Gas courses so we like to keep updated on all things Gas related! Another report today of illegal gas work, it is completely pointless to carry out gas work without being registered as you will be caught out! We see this type of offence over and over again, gas is a serious subject and should not be taken lightly by tradesmen. Attempting to carry out work without registration is highly illegal and will result in a multitude of fines and even suspension from all trade work!

Make sure your Boiler is being serviced by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer!


This latest report of illegal gas work comes from Mansfield, where a man failed to renew his Gas Safe registration after it expired and carried on doing gas work as normal, knowing full well that his registration was out of date. The particular incidents he was eventually caught for where when he replaced a boiler and radiators at an address on Shakespeare Avenue, Mansfield, on September 7 and 9, and replaced a boiler at an address on The Baulk, Worksop, on October 6. It wanst just that this man in question was not currently registered these two jobs were actually faulty - problems arose with both installations, and engineers had to repair defects on one boiler, while the other was described as "immediately dangerous."
