Why would you use a Commercial Gas Engineer?

A Commercial Gas Engineer will be experienced in working with, repairing, maintaining and installing more substantial gas appliances, heating systems and pipework and this means they will certainly have the knowledge needed to maintain and repair these types of larger systems.

What qualifications should a Commercial Gas Engineer have?

A registered and accredited Gas Engineer will certainly have an industry qualification such as Gas Installation and Maintenance or Gas Utilisation Engineer Level 3 NVQ or Diploma and be Gas Safe registered. Some qualified gas engineers become qualified from working through an apprenticeship and obtain the exact same qualifications as the end of it.

Why is it important to employ qualified Commercial Gas Engineers Newport?

Dangerous and incorrect gas work can be dangerous and even deadly. Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances may lead to gas leaks, fires, explosions as well as carbon monoxide poisoning. Using an unqualified illegal gas fitter can put lives in danger in addition to costing you a great deal to have it corrected or remedied.

It really is astounding that there are over a quarter of a million illegal gas jobs conducted every year. In the event that your gas engineer is not Gas Safe registered then they are simply working illegally. If your gas engineer is qualified and registered to complete gas work in your property then they will be able to show 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 really certified in order to work on the specific form of gas work you require. As an example, if they put in a gas fire yet they are solely Gas Safe registered for pipework and boilers then they and their work is illegal.

An additional aspect to bear in mind is if a Gas Engineer works for a Gas Safe registered company during the course of the week and they are conducting work for you outside of this as a private job then they are only conducting work legally if they are personally registered with the Gas Safe Register. It is against the law for any individual to do work on gas appliances within the UK, 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 relevant 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 act as a licensing body.

Once a business becomes Gas Safe registered they are being issued a licence in order to carry out gas work. As a result, the checks the Gas Safe Register make before allowing enrollment only extend to ensuring that those making an application are suitably qualified as gas safety competent. The 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 need to have gas work carried out in your business or workplace, you can use a variety of search options to locate 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 legitimately allowed to accomplish gas work. Every registered business who employs gas engineers is issued with Gas Safe ID cards. Not all engineers are qualified to do all forms of gas work so always remember to inspect their ID card well before any work is performed or work with an expert, reliable and reputable facilities company, like BPS, who is going to only ensure the correct and appropriately qualified gas engineer is dispatched to your establishment.

There are in excess of 120,000 engineers on the Gas Safe Register and the Gas Safe Register inspects the work they’ve fulfilled on an ad hoc basis in order to monitor their work is still compliant and safe. If you’ve had gas work performed in the last six months, you can nominate it for a no-cost gas safety inspection. If you believe an individual is working on gas unlawfully, you should report them to the Gas Safe Register who will then investigate.

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. They conduct public awareness campaigns to ensure gas consumers aware of the risks of perilous and unlawful gas work, and of other dangers, for example, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. It is the coordinating body for the once a year industry-wide Gas Safety Week campaign.

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

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

What are Gas Safety Records?

The documentation an engineer leaves behind immediately after having installed, serviced or safety checked a system depends on the purpose and type of work undertaken. The only paperwork required by legislation is a Landlord Gas Safety Record. It will detail exactly what checks the engineer has carried out and if the appliances checked is safe in order to satisfy the appropriate safety standards and insurance.

What is the Purpose of the Gas Safety Register?

The Gas Safety Register aims to protect the public from harmful gas work, and they aim to accomplish this via:

  1. A national investigations team tracking down unlawful gas workers.
  2. Regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers.
  3. Educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety.
  4. Investigating reports of unsafe gas work.

What does a Commercial Gas Engineer do?

A Commercial Gas Engineer will repair, service, maintain and install gas pipework, gas boilers and heating and cooling system. They will have the knowledge and expertise to efficiently detect and repair issues as well as pre-empt possible problems that may occur with more substantial commercial systems.

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

A Commercial Gas Engineer will definitely have the expertise as well as the experience of working on, repairing, maintaining as well as installing larger and even more intricate pipework with commercial appliances and within commercial premises.

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

There may be examples in larger sized domestic properties in which non-domestic appliances and larger pipework are called for and in these kinds of circumstances, commercial gas services classifications may be necessary.

If you are not sure if you need to have a commercial or domestic gas engineer then you can call the Gas Safe Register or get in touch with our team on 029 2048 4114 in order to get advice.

What hours does a Commercial Gas Engineer work?

Most Commercial Gas Engineers will be available 24/7 as they will carry out both scheduled routine maintenance and servicing work, installations in addition to unexpected emergency reactive services also and as a result of this, it is normal that they hold a full driving licence.
