“It’s the duty of every employer or self-employed person to ensure that any gas appliance, installation pipe work or flue installed at any place of work under their control is maintained in a safe condition so as to prevent risk or injury to any person.”

Business gas safety checks

You’ll need a Gas Safe registered engineer

A business gas safety check is an inspection or service of your commercial gas appliance or boiler by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

They’ll check your appliance to make sure it’s running safely and efficiently.
