Copyright 2012 Pembrokeshire Gas Maintenance
Gas Safe Register is the official list of gas engineers who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances. By law, all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register. It replaced CORGI.
Landlords have responsibilities for gas safety. All gas appliances provided by the landlord must be correctly maintained and a gas safety check must be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
If you are a tenant always:
-Check the ID card of any gas engineer that comes to do work in your home. The engineer must be Gas Safe registered.
-Cooperate with your landlord and let a registered engineer in whenever a gas safety check or maintenance is required
-Ask for a copy of the gas safety record before you move in or within 28 days of it being carried out.
Remember, if you think a gas appliance is faulty turn it off and let your landlord know immediately. Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. If you feel unwell seek medical help immediately.
