CORGI to Gas Safe When most people think of safety in gas appliances they think of CORGI registered heating engineers but on 1 April 2009 the CORGI Gas Registration scheme was replaced by the Gas Safe Register™ and has now become the new Gas Safety authority in Great Britain and the Isle of Man. The register exists to protect you, your family, and your property from dangerous gas work.
What is the ‘Gas Safe Register™’
All Always plumbers and heating engineers are Gas Safe RegisteredThe aims to make Britain a gas safe environment by preventing Only ‘Gas Safe Register’ registered trades people Can carrying out any work on gas installations or appliances. Traditional CORGI registration is no longer valid. By law, anyone carrying out work on gas installations and appliances in your home must now be on the Gas Safe Register.
The 120,000 engineers who were CORGI registered must now be with Gas Safe Register or they will not be able to continue working legally. At Always Plumbing based in St Albans, Hertfordshire we are Gas Safe Registered and all our engineers will produce on request proof of this. Why the change?
The main priority of Gas Safe Register is to make Britain gas safe and to raise awareness of gas related issues. An average of 35 people a year are killed or injured in gas explosions (Source: HSE Gas Safety Statistics). This is due to badly repaired gas appliances or incorrectly and badly installed gas appliances which are a major cause of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, and can lead to gas leaks and even explosions. On average, 18 people in Britain die due to CO poisoning each year, while others suffer acute or chronic health problems.
How do I know Always plumbers and heating engineeers are Gas Safe Registered?
Always Plumbers always carry their Gas Safe Register ID Card with them and will be able to produce it upon request. The ID Cards have a Gas Safe Register yellow logo, a photo of the holder and unique license number.
