Why you Need Gas Safe Registered Engineers for Your Gas Installations.
By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register to carry out any gas work.
In the UK, only Gas Safe (formerly CORGI) registered engineers can work on gas installations. These include boilers, fires, cookers and gas pipework. With a complex installation of pipes and many appliances such as boilers, gas fires, hobs, grills and ovens connected to the installation, it is easy for the gas to leak unless all the components are correctly installed.
Working with gas is not a DIY job. Nor can it be done by the odd job specialist who is not gas safe qualified. You risk the lives of your family members and your own if you choose these (probably cheaper) alternatives. A devastating explosion can result if a source of ignition is introduced into a house where gas is leaking.
The Gas Safe Register
In the UK, the Gas Safe (formerly CORGI) Register lists engineers who are trained and qualified to work on gas installations and appliances. It is illegal for persons not in this list to do gas work. Registered engineers are required to carry their Gas Safe ID cards.
You can check whether the engineer who comes to your property is registered by checking their Gas Safe ID. If you use Liquid Petroleum Gas instead of natural gas, you should also check whether they are LPG qualified. Commercial gas installations also require the correct qualifications to carry out gas work on commercial installations.
