More about the Gas Safe Register
Gas Safe Register protects you from dangerous gas work. You can make sure that gas appliances such as boilers, fires and cookers are installed, maintained and serviced safely by using a registered engineer.
Gas engineers must be on the register to carry out work on gas installations and appliances safely and legally.
If someone other than a Gas Safe registered engineer does the work in your home, you could be risking peoples' lives.
Poorly maintained, badly installed or faulty gas appliances could put you at risk from gas leaks, fire, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide is a highly poisonous gas which you can't see, taste or smell, but it can kill quickly with no warning.
