In support of National Gas Safety Week by the Gas Safe Register (16-22 September 2019), local Gas Safe registered engineers from CP12 Energy in Newcastle, are creating daily informational articles, to inform landlords and the public of gas safety issues and to remind everyone of the importance of having an annual gas safety check by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
This Gas Safety Week we are informing the public of a wide range of gas safety matters throughout the week. This includes how to stay Gas Safe all year round, what landlords need to know about Gas Safety, and what renters should expect from their landlords when it comes to Gas Safety in their home.
Gas appliances that have not properly been maintained can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide is known as the ‘silent killer’ because you can’t see, smell or taste it. Therefore, it is highly important to have your gas appliances checked by an engineer who is on the Gas Safe Register.
Shainy Moscovitch, director of CP12 Energy said: “It is our job to make sure that people’s gas appliances are operating safely and efficiently. We have found that the Gas Safety checks performed by other gas companies can be complicated for landlords so we have made a simple process with great customer service that has helped us win regional awards and be shortlisted nationally. As people do not know the signs and symptoms of faulty gas appliances and carbon monoxide poisoning, we are supporting Gas Safety Week for the second year in order to alert the landlords and the public of the seriousness of unsafe gas appliances and how they can keep themselves and their tenants safe.”
Jonathan Samuel, chief executive for Gas Safe Register, said: “Unsafe gas appliances can be fatal, and not being aware of these dangers can cause you and your family harm. This Gas Safety Week we have the support of CP12 Energy and by working together we can keep the public informed of gas safety and help reduce the risk of dangerous gas appliances across the UK.”
