Why should you employ Commercial Gas Engineers Leeds?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will be experienced in working with, repairing, maintaining and installing more substantial and commercial gas appliances, heating systems and pipework and this means they will have the knowledge needed to maintain and repair these kinds of larger systems.
What qualifications should Commercial Gas Engineers Leeds have?
A registered and accredited Gas Engineer will have an industry qualification such as Gas Installation and maintenance or Gas Utilisation Engineer Level 3 NVQ or Diploma and be Gas Safe registered. Some qualified gas engineers become qualified from working through an apprenticeship and still achieve the very same qualifications as the end of it.
Why is it necessary to use qualified Commercial Gas Engineers Leeds?
It really is simple, dangerous and incorrect gas work can be lethal. Improperly fitted and also badly serviced appliances may result in gas leakages, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide gas poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can absolutely place lives at risk in addition to costing you a great deal to have it resolved or rectified.
It is unbelievable that there are over a quarter of a million illegal gas jobs performed each year. If your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are illegal. If your gas engineer is certified and registered to execute gas work in your property then they will be able to let you see their Gas Safe ID card.
Not all gas engineers are certified to work on all forms of gas appliances. The back of their Gas ID card tells you if they are certified in order to work on the specific type of gas work you need. As an example, if they install a gas fire yet they are solely Gas Safe registered for pipework and central heating boilers then they and their work are actually illegal.
Another issue to bear in mind is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered company during the week and they are conducting work for you outside of this as a private job then this is also illegal unless they are personally registered with the Gas Safety Register.
It is against the law for anyone to do work on gas appliances in 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 UK, Isle of Man and Guernsey, appointed by the applicable Health and Safety Authority for each 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 an organisation 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 that have demonstrated their proficiency by successfully passing a driving test). As a result, the checks Gas Safe Register make prior to allowing enrollment only extend to making certain that those making an application for, and holding, registration are appropriately qualified as gas safety competent.
The Gas Safe Register is not a membership body for engineers, nor a trade association.
The Gas Safe Register took the place of CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and in Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1st April 2010.
If you require gas work completed in your commercial property or workplace, you can use the variety of search options on the Gas Safet Register website to find a registered business or check an engineer is registered and qualified for the task you need doing.
The Gas Safe Register is the official list of organisations that are legally given permission to undertake gas work. Every registered business who employs gas engineers is issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are certified to perform all varieties of gas work so always remember to check their ID card in advance of any work is carried out or work with a specialist, trusted and reputable facilities company, like CMS, who will only ensure the correct and appropriately qualified gas engineer is dispatched to your commercial property.
If you believe an individual is working on gas illegally, you should report them to the Gas Safe Register who will then investigate.
There are in excess of 120,000 engineers on the Gas Safe Register and the Gas Safe Register inspects the work they’ve fulfilled on an ad hoc basis to monitor their work is still compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work completed in the previous six months, you can nominate it for a free of charge gas safety inspection.
What is the Purpose of the Gas Safety Register?
The Gas Safety Register aims to protect the public from unsafe gas work, and they aim to achieve this through:
- a nationwide investigations team uncovering illegal gas workers
- regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
- educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
- investigating reports of unsafe gas work
What does the Gas Safety Register do?
- The Gas Safe Register investigates reports of illegal gas work. The information they compile is passed on to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), who have the power to prosecute
- The Gas Safe Register conducts public awareness campaigns to make as consumers aware of the risks of dangerous and unlawful gas work, and of other dangers, for example, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning
- It is the coordinating body for the yearly industry-wide Gas Safety Week campaign
- The Gas Safe Register is handled by Capita Gas Registration and Ancillary Services Limited, a division of Capita Plc
You should receive a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate if a Gas Safe registered engineer installs a heat generating gas appliance in your residential or commercial property. It’s effectively a method of advising the Local Authority of the new appliance, and you should receive it in the post inside 28 days of a new appliance being put in. If you need a duplicate Building Regulations Compliance Certificate you can do this on the internet or get in touch with them on 0800 408 5500 and choose option 6. There is a fee for duplicate certificates.
Gas Safety Records
The documentation an engineer leaves behind after having fitted, serviced or safety checked a system depends on the purpose and type of work performed. The only documentation required by legislation is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail exactly what checks the engineer has carried out and if the appliances checked to satisfy the appropriate safety standards.
What does a Commercial Gas Engineer do?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will repair, service, maintain and install gas pipework, gas boilers and heating systems. They will have the knowledge and expertise to efficiently detect and repair issues as well as pre-empt potential issues that may occur with much larger commercial systems.
Why are Commercial Gas Engineers different from Domestic Gas Engineers Leeds?
A Domestic Gas Engineer will only have the knowledge of repairing, maintaining and installing gas appliances that are constructed for use in domestic properties as well as gas pipework up to 35mm in diameter in residential homes. There might be examples in larger sized domestic homes where non-domestic apparatus and larger pipework is needed and in these kinds of situations, commercial casework classifications may be necessary and CMS are always on hand to help you with any questions you may have about this.
A Commercial Gas Engineer will have the specialist knowledge and the experience of working on, repairing, maintaining and also installing larger and more complicated pipework with commercial appliances and within commercial buildings.
