What is a gas safety check?

A gas safety check is an inspection or service of your business gas appliance or boiler by a Gas Safe registered engineer. They’ll check your appliance to make sure it’s running efficiently and safe.

Why you need a gas appliance service

A faulty boiler or gas appliance could waste you money on energy, or worse, start leaking carbon monoxide. Because carbon monoxide is colourless and doesn’t smell, it’s hard to know if one of your appliances starts leaking gas. To help keep your business safe and comply with your legal obligations, a gas safety inspection is strongly recommended each year. This should always be completed by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Your key obligations are found in:

  • The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974)
  • Workplace Regulations 1992
  • Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998
