What is a Commercial Gas Engineer?
A commercial Gas Engineer will maintain, repair and install commercial appliances, heaters, central heating boilers and pipework in schools, college and universities, places of worship, public buildings etc. and commercial properties.
Why would anyone choose Commercial Gas Engineers Birmingham?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will be trained and experienced in working with, repairing, maintaining and installing larger gas appliances, heating and cooling system and pipework and this means they will certainly have the specialist knowledge required to maintain and repair these larger systems.
What qualifications should Commercial Gas Engineers Birmingham have?
A registered and accredited Gas Engineer will have an industry qualification, for instance, Gas Installation and Maintenance, Gas Utilisation Engineer Level 3 NVQ or Diploma and be Gas Safe registered. Some certified gas engineers become qualified from working through an apprenticeship and still obtain the same qualifications as the end of it.
Why is it necessary to employ qualified Commercial Gas Engineers Birmingham?
It really is simple, dangerous and incorrect gas work can be fatal. Badly fitted and also inadequately serviced appliances can lead to gas leaks, fires, explosions and also carbon monoxide poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can possibly put lives in danger as well as costing you a great deal to have it remedied or corrected.
It is unbelievable that there more than a quarter of a million unlawful gas jobs performed each year. If your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are operating illegally. If your gas engineer is certified and registered to complete gas work then they will be able to show you their Gas Safe ID card.
Not all gas engineers are qualified to work on all types of gas appliances. The back of their Gas Safe ID card shows you if they are qualified to work on the specific type of gas work you require. As an example, if they put in a gas fire yet they are really only Gas Safe registered for pipework and boilers then they and their work will be illegal.
Another point to appreciate is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered company during the week and they are performing work for you outside of this as a private job then this is illegal unless they are personally registered with the Gas Safe Register.
It is actually against the law for anybody to do work on gas equipment within the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or Guernsey unless they are Gas Safe registered.
What is the Gas Safe Register?
The Gas Safe Register is the official gas registration body for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey who are appointed by the applicable Health and Safety Authority for their area. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register, and the Register’s role is to serve as a licensing body.
When a company becomes Gas Safe registered they are being issued a licence in order to carry out gas work (much as the DVLA issues driving licences to individuals who have demonstrated their competence by passing a driving test). As a result, the checks Gas Safe Register make prior to permitting enrollment only extend to ensuring that those applying for, and holding registration is suitably qualified as gas safety proficient.
Gas Safe Register is not a membership body for engineers, nor a trade association.
Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1st April 2009 and in Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1st April 2010.
If you need to have gas work completed in your commercial property or work environment you can use the different search options to locate a registered and qualified business or check if an engineer is registered and qualified for the work you need doing.
The Gas Safe Register is the official list of businesses that are officially allowed to implement gas work. Each and every registered business who employs gas engineers are issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are qualified to carry out all varieties of gas work so always remember to check their ID card ahead of any work is carried out or choose an experienced, dependable and reputable facilities company, such as CMS, who will only ensure the appropriate and correctly qualified gas engineer is dispatched to you.
If you believe anyone is working on gas illegally, you should report them to the Gas Safe Register who will then investigate.
There are more than 120,000 engineers on the Gas Safe Register and the Gas Safe Register inspects the work they’ve completed on an impromptu basis to monitor their work is still compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work done in the previous six months, you can nominate it for a free of charge gas safety inspection.

A Gas Safety Record
The documentation an engineer leaves after having fitted, serviced or safety checked a system depends on the purpose and type of work carried out. The only documentation required legally is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail precisely what checks the engineer has performed and if the appliance meets the appropriate safety standards.
What is the Purpose of the Gas Safety Register?
The Gas Safety Register aims to protect the general public from unsafe gas work, and they aim to accomplish this by:
