Today has brought to life another case of illegal gas work! This seems to be happening more and more and only ends up with bad results. If you have just left our facility after completing one of our Gas courses and you are seeking employment then you MUST register with the Gas Safe Register - It is a legal requirement that if ignored will only equal bad news, fines and even suspension.

Today another unregistered gas engineer has been ordered to carry out 120 hours of community service and to pay costs of £4,345.04 after he carried out gas work at a GP Practice without being on the Gas Safe Register. - Registration with Gas Safe Register requires engineers to demonstrate that they hold the relevant competencies and qualifications for the work they intend to carry out, ensuring that gas work is carried out to an appropriate standard and the public are not put at risk of serious harm. This registration body is in place because gas can be extremely dangerous and the GasSafe Register aims to keep both the public and the engineer away from risk!


How do I become Gas Safe Registered?


An ACS will need to be completed before you are eligible for Gas Safe registration and this is a requirement for all operatives involved in the installation, maintenance and servicing of domestic gas appliances and pipe-work installations. Also, every Gas Safe registered business renews their registration on an annual basis and updates their qualifications every 5 years, meaning you will need to refresh your memory on gas safety every 5-years! You can apply online, they have made it as simple and easy as possible - applying costs around £362 - do not try to avoid becoming registered because ultimately you will be found out!
