Why would you employ a Commercial Gas Engineer?

A Commercial Gas Engineer will certainly be experienced in working with, repairing, maintaining and installing larger gas appliances, heating systems and pipework and this means they will certainly possess the specialist knowledge required to maintain and repair these larger systems.

What qualifications should a Commercial Gas Engineer have?

A registered and accredited Gas Engineer will certainly have an industry qualification, for example, Gas Installation and Maintenance or Gas Utilisation Engineer Level 3 NVQ or Diploma and be Gas Safe registered. Some certified gas engineers become qualified from working through an apprenticeship and still achieve the very same qualifications as the end of it.

Why is it important to use qualified Commercial Gas Engineers Cardiff?

It really is simple, dangerous and incorrect gas work can be deadly. Poorly fitted and also inadequately serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide gas poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can place lives at risk in addition to costing you a great deal to have it resolved or rectified.

It really is unbelievable that there are over a quarter of a million unlawful gas jobs performed yearly. In the event that your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are operating illegally. If your gas engineer is certified and registered to complete gas work in your home then they will be in a position to present you their Gas Safe ID card.

Be aware that not all gas engineers are qualified to work on all types of gas appliances. The back of their ID card tells you if they are actually certified to work on the specific type of gas work you require. As an example, if they install a gas fire however they are only Gas Safe registered for pipework and boilers then they and their work are illegal.

An additional aspect to take note of is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered business during the course of the week and they are doing work for you outside of this as a private job then this is also illegal.

It is against the law for anyone to do work on gas equipment in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man or Guernsey unless they are Gas Safe registered.

What is the Gas Safe Register?

The Gas Safe Register is the official gas registration body for the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Guernsey, appointed by the appropriate Health and Safety Authority for each area. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register, and the Register’s role is to serve as a licensing body.

When a business becomes Gas Safe registered they are being issued a licence in order to carry out gas work (much as the DVLA issues driving licences to those who have demonstrated their competence by successfully passing a driving test). Consequently, the checks Gas Safe Register make prior to permitting enrollment only extend to ensuring that those making an application for, and holding, registration is suitably qualified as gas safety proficient.

Gas Safe Register is not a membership body for engineers, nor a trade association.

Gas Safe Register replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in Great Britain and Isle of Man on 1 April 2009 and in Northern Ireland and Guernsey on 1 April 2010.

If you require gas work completed in your business or work environment, you can make use of the several search options to find a registered business or check an engineer is registered and qualified for the task you need doing.

The Gas Safe Register is the official list of businesses that are legally permitted to implement gas work. Every registered business who employs gas engineers is issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are certified to do all types of gas work so remember to inspect their ID card prior to any work is carried out or choose an expert, reliable and reputable facilities company, like BPS, who will only ensure the right and correctly qualified gas engineer is dispatched to your business.

If you think a person is working on gas unlawfully, you ought to report them to the Gas Safe Register who will then investigate.

There are more than 120,000 engineers on the Gas Safe Register and the Gas Safe Register inspects the work they’ve completed on an ad hoc basis in order to monitor their work is still compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work completed in the last six months, you can nominate it for a no-cost gas safety inspection.

What does the Gas Safety Register do?

The Gas Safe Register investigates reports of illegal gas work. The relevant information they gather is passed on to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), who have the power to prosecute.

The Gas Safe Register conducts public awareness campaigns to make gas consumers aware of the risks of perilous and unlawful gas work, and of various other dangers, for example, carbon monoxide gas (CO) poisoning. It is the coordinating body for the yearly industry-wide Gas Safety Week campaign.

The Gas Safe Register is run by Capita Gas Registration and Ancillary Services Limited, a division of Capita Plc

You should receive a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate if a Gas Safe registered engineer installs a heat generating gas appliance in your property. It’s effectively a way of advising the Local Authority of the new apparatus, and you should receive it in the post within 28 days of a new appliance being put in.

If you require a duplicate Building Regulations Compliance Certificate you can do this on the internet or call them on 0800 408 5500 and select option 6. There is a cost for duplicate certificates.

Gas Safety Records

The documentation an engineer leaves immediately after having fitted, serviced or safety checked a system is dependent upon the purpose and type of work executed. The only documentation required by law is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail precisely what checks the engineer has performed and if the appliances checked to fulfil the appropriate safety standards.

What is the Purpose of the Gas Safety Register?

The Gas Safety Register aims to protect the general public from hazardous gas work, and they aim to achieve this via:

  • a nationwide investigations team identifying illegal gas workers
  • frequent inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
  • educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
  • investigating reports of dangerous gas work

A Commercial Gas Engineer will repair, service, maintain and install gas pipework, gas boilers and heating and cooling system. These experts will certainly have the knowledge and experience to swiftly identify and repair issues as well as pre-empt potential problems that might arise with larger commercial systems.

Why is a Commercial Gas Engineer different from a Domestic Gas Engineer?

A Commercial Gas Engineer will definitely have the expertise and also the experience of working on, repairing, maintaining and installing larger and even more complex pipework with commercial appliances and within commercial buildings.

A Domestic Gas Engineer will only have the practical experience of repairing, maintaining and installing gas appliances that are designed for use in domestic properties as well as gas pipework up to 35mm in diameter within residential buildings.

There can be instances in much larger residential properties where non-domestic apparatus and larger pipework is required and in these particular situations, commercial gas services categories may be necessary.
