Staying ‘Gas Safe’ saves lives

As an employer, you have a legal responsibility to ensure your gas supply and appliances are safe by carrying out business gas safety checks.

But not only is staying ‘gas safe’ a legal requirement, it can also save your life or those of your employees.

To ensure you stay safe, your business premises must be inspected by a Gas Safe registered engineer every year. If your gas systems and appliances pass, you’ll be given a Gas Safety Record. If they fail, the engineer will tell you what you need to do next.
