Gas Safety Week

19 September 2017

Time to plan
18th to 24th September is Gas Safety Week

Gas Safety Week aims to raise awareness of gas safety and reminds organisations to have gas appliances safety checked annually by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer.

If you’re looking for inspiration on how you can go the extra mile, why not visit GasSafetyWeek for more information and to see what others did in 2016.

Landlords are legally responsible for the safety of tenants in relation to gas safety.  By law landlords must:

•    Repair and maintain gas pipework, flues and appliances in safe condition
•    Ensure an annual gas safety check on each appliance and flue
•    Keep a record of each safety check

Landlords should also your tenants informed about their responsibilities.
