Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. Every year thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning. It is a highly poisonous gas. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly with no warning.
Gas Safety Week is an annual safety week to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances. It is co-ordinated by Gas Safe Register, the official list of gas engineers who are legally allowed to work on gas. As providers of gas powered tumble dryers, we are proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week 2014, taking place 15th – 21st September.
Did you know?
It’s a scary statistic but Gas Safe Register estimates that there are around 7,500 illegal gas fitters operating across the UK and up to 250,000 illegal gas jobs carried out each year (Gas Safe Register Research 2009). However, for your peace of mind, all our engineers are Gas Safe registered, so you can be assured that our team are all correctly trained and any gas work is carried out correctly and safely.
