Why would anyone employ a Commercial Gas Engineer?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will certainly be experienced in working on, repairing, maintaining and installing more substantial gas appliances, heating and cooling systems and pipework and this means they are going to have the knowledge needed to maintain and repair these larger systems.
What qualifications should a Commercial Gas Engineer have?
A registered and accredited Gas Engineer will have an industry qualification such as Gas Installation and Maintenance or a Gas Utilisation Engineer Level 3 NVQ or Diploma, and be Gas Safe registered. Some certified gas engineers become qualified by working through an apprenticeship and still achieve the same qualifications at the end of it.
Why is it necessary to employ a qualified Commercial Gas Engineer?
It really is simple, dangerous and incorrect gas work can be harmful. Badly fitted and also inadequately serviced appliances can lead to gas leaks, fires, explosions as well as carbon monoxide poisoning. Using an unqualified and illegal gas fitter will put lives in danger in addition to costing you a great deal to have it fixed or corrected.
It really is astonishing that there are over a quarter of a million illegal gas jobs carried out each year. If your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are simply illegal. If your gas engineer is qualified and registered to execute gas work in your property then they will be able to show you their Gas Safe ID card.
Understand that not all gas engineers are qualified to work on all varieties of gas appliances. The back of their ID card tells you if they are actually qualified to work on the specific type of gas work you need. As an example, if they put in a gas fire but they are solely Gas Safe registered for pipework and central heating boilers then they and their work are literally illegal.
It is actually against the law for anyone to do work on gas equipment within the UK, 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, appointed by the appropriate 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 an organisation becomes Gas Safe registered they have issued a licence in order to carry out gas work (much as the DVLA issues driving licences to those who have demonstrated their proficiency by passing a driving test). Consequently, the checks the Gas Safe Register make prior to permitting enrollment only extend to making certain that those applying for, and holding registration is suitably qualified as gas safety competent. The Gas Safe Register is not a membership body for engineers or a trade association.
The Gas Safe Register is the official list of businesses that are legally allowed to perform gas work. Every registered business who employs gas engineers is issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are certified to perform all types of gas work so remember to check their ID card in advance of any work is undertaken or work with a qualified professional, trustworthy and reputable facilities company, like CMS, who are going to only ensure the correct and appropriately qualified gas engineer is dispatched to your business.
The Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and in Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010.
If you need gas work performed in your commercial property or workplace, you can use the search options on the Gas Safe Register website to find a registered business or check an engineer is registered and qualified for the task you need doing.
If you think a person 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 completed on an ad hoc basis to monitor their work is compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work completed in the previous six months, you can nominate it for a free gas safety inspection.
What does the Gas Safety Register do?
The Gas Safe Register investigates reports of illegal gas work. The relevant information they collect 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 ensure gas consumers are aware of the risks of perilous and illegal gas work, and of various other dangers, for example, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. It is the coordinating body for the once a year industry-wide Gas Safety Week campaign.
The Gas Safe Register is operated by Capita Gas Registration and Ancillary Services Limited, a division of Capita Plc
What is the purpose of the Gas Safety Register?
The Gas Safety Register aims to safeguard the public from harmful gas work, and they look to achieve this via:
- a national investigations team finding illegal gas workers
- regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
- educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
- investigating reports of dangerous gas work
What should you expect after having Gas Work carried out?
You should be given a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate if a Gas Safe registered engineer installs a heat producing gas appliance in your property. It is effectively a method of advising the Local Authority of the new appliance and you should receive it in the post within 28 days of a new appliance being installed.
If you need a duplicate Building Regulations Compliance Certificate you can request this on the internet or get in touch on 0800 408 5500 and choose option 6. Be aware there is a fee for duplicate certificates.
Gas Safety Records
The documentation an engineer leaves behind after having installed, serviced or safety checked a system depends on the purpose and type of work carried out. The only paperwork required by law is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail precisely what checks the engineer has performed and if the appliances checked so as to meet the appropriate safety standards and for insurance purposes.
What does a Commercial Gas Engineer do?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will repair, service, maintain and install gas pipework, gas boilers and heating systems. These experts will certainly have the knowledge and experience to swiftly detect and repair problems as well as pre-empt possible problems that can occur with larger commercial systems.
Why is a Commercial Gas Engineer different from a Domestic Gas Engineer?
A Commercial Gas Engineer will possess the expertise as well as practical experience of working with, repairing, maintaining and also installing larger and a lot more complex pipework with commercial appliances and within commercial buildings.
A Domestic Gas Engineer will only have the knowledge of repairing, maintaining and installing gas appliances that are designed for usage in domestic properties as well as gas pipework up to 35mm in diameter within residential buildings.
Certainly, there may well be instances in more substantial residential homes where non-domestic appliances and larger pipework is called for and in these kinds of scenarios, commercial gas services classifications may be necessary.
If you are not sure if you need a commercial or domestic gas engineer then you can call the Gas Safe Register or call us to get advice.
What hours does a Commercial Gas Engineer work?
Most Commercial Gas Engineers will be readily available 24/7 as they will work on unexpected emergency reactive services as well as both planned maintenance and servicing work and installations. It is normal that they hold a full driving licence as they then don’t then need to rely on anyone else to get to a job quickly.
