Gas Safety Week is an annual event to help make homeowners and businesses aware of the importance of taking care of your gas appliances. It’s run by the Gas Safe Register, which is the official UK list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on gas appliances.
Poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. You can’t see, taste or smell Carbon Monoxide, but it can kill quickly with no warning.
How to keep your business gas safe
- Get your gas appliances serviced once a year by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
- Remember, as a business it’s important that you choose an engineer suitably qualified to work on commercial gas appliances. Alan from British Gas explains why you need a commercial rather than a domestic gas engineer.
- Get a carbon monoxide alarm. This will alert you if there is carbon monoxide in your business.
At British Gas Business, we offer services to nearly 40,000 SME customers to help keep their business premises safe. We have a network of commercially trained Gas Safe Registered engineers, who service and maintain thousands of boilers and gas appliances for businesses across the country.
