Gas Safety Week: Fighting for a Gas Safe Nation


Gas Safety Week: Fighting For A Gas Safe Nation

Helping the public stay gas safe

Here at Plumr, we are proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week 2020, taking place 14 – 20 September.

Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions, and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. CO is a highly poisonous gas that can kill quickly and without warning, as you cannot see it, taste it, or smell it.

By taking care of your gas appliances properly you are taking care of your home and those who matter most to you. Following these few simple checks, we can work with you to keep your friends and family safe.

Check your gas appliances every year.

A Gas Safe registered engineer should safety check gas appliances once a year and service them regularly. Tenants – make sure your landlord arranges this.

Look out for friends and relatives.

Some people may be unable to arrange their own gas safety check or may be unaware of what they need to do to keep safe. Help your loved ones by ensuring that they have their appliances checked and serviced regularly.

Check your engineer is Gas Safe registered.

You can find or check an engineer at or call 0800 408 5500.

Check your engineer is qualified for the type of gas work you need doing

e.g. natural gas, domestic boiler. You can find this information on the back of their Gas Safe ID card and on the Gas Safe Register website.

Check for warning signs that could indicate your (or others) appliances are not working correctly.

Signs may include lazy yellow /orange flames instead of crisp blue ones. Black marks on or around the appliance, a pilot light that keeps going out. Too much condensation in the room.

Know the six main symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning

headaches, dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, collapse, and loss of consciousness.

Install an audible carbon monoxide alarm and make sure your friends and relatives have one too

Check they are marked EN50291 and display the British Standards’ Kitemark.

Please call 0208 616 8710 or mail us today to book a service for you or a loved one to ensure their property is safe.
