Why is it vital to choose qualified Commercial Gas Engineers London?
It really is simple, dangerous and incorrect gas work can be fatal. Poorly fitted and also badly serviced appliances can cause gas leakages, fires, explosions and also carbon monoxide poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can put lives at risk in addition to costing you a great deal to have it addressed or rectified.
It really is shocking that there are over a quarter of a million unlawful gas jobs conducted annually. If your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are operating illegally. If your gas engineer is qualified and registered to perform gas work in your home then they will be in a position to show you their Gas Safe ID card.
Not all gas engineers are certified to work on all varieties of gas appliances and systems. The back of their ID card tells you if they are really qualified to work on the specific type of gas work you require. As an example, if they install a gas fire, however, they are really only Gas Safe registered for pipework and central heating boilers then their work is deemed as illegal.
Another factor to take note of is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered service provider during the course of the week and they are doing work for you outside of this as a private job then this is likewise illegal unless they are personally registered with the Gas Safe Register.
It is against the law for anyone to do work on gas appliances within the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or Guernsey unless they are Gas Safe registered.

The Gas Safe Register is the official gas registration body for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey appointed by the relevant 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.
Once a business becomes Gas Safe registered they are being issued a licence to carry out gas work. As a result, the checks Gas Safe Register make prior to allowing enrollment only extend to ensuring that those making an application for, and holding, registration is appropriately qualified as gas safety proficient.

The 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.
In the event that you need to have gas work done in your commercial property or place of work, you can use the different search options on the Gas Safe Register website to locate a registered business or to check if an engineer is registered and qualified for the work you need doing.
The Gas Safe Register is the official list of organisations that are legally permitted to implement gas work. Each and every registered organisation who employs gas engineers are issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are certified to carry out all forms of gas work so remember to inspect their ID card before any work is carried out. Making use of a specialist, reliable and reputable facilities company like CMS, who is going to only ensure the appropriate and correctly qualified as an engineer is dispatched to your establishment is really important.
