Gas Safety Week 2014

Gas Safety Week 2014 starts today. Co-ordinated by the Gas Safe Register with support from the gas industry including retailers, manufacturers, consumer bodies and the public. The week aims to highlight the importance of regular checks on gas appliances.

A survey of Gas Safety Register engineers reports that 1 in 6 properties they attend have an unsafe gas appliance.

Birmingham is thought to be the worst place in the UK for gas safety with one third of homes thought to have an unsafe gas appliance.

Russell Kramer, chief executive for Gas Safe Register, said: “Over the past three years there’s been 31 deaths and over 1,000 injuries that have resulted from gas related incidents.

Landlords need to make sure they keep all their annual Gas Safety Certificates up to date.
