Gas Safety Week is a nationwide initiative to remind us all about the importance of gas safety and the few, simple steps which we can take to ensure households, landlords and tenants stay compliant and stay safe.


The Gas Safe register has issued the following steps that landlords can take to be ‘GAS SAFE:

·         Only use a Gas Safe registered engineer to fit, fix and service your appliances. To find and check an engineer see 

·         Check both sides of your engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card. Ensure ake sure they are qualified for the work you need doing.

·         Have all your gas appliances regularly serviced and safety checked every year. Tenants can receive a copy of the Gas Safety Record their landlord.

·         Be aware of the signs of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning – headaches, dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, collapse and loss of consciousness.

·         Check gas appliances for warning signs that they are not working properly - lazy yellow flames instead of crisp blue ones, black marks or stains on or around the appliance and too much condensation in the room.

·         Fit an audible carbon monoxide alarm – be alerted if carbon monoxide is in your home.


In April of this year, gas safety rules relating to annual gas safety checks were amended, providing landlords greater flexibility when it comes to the timing of landlords’ annual gas safety checks - landlords can now carry out the annual gas safety check in the two months preceding the due date and still retain the existing expiry date.


Remember, Gas Safety is important all year round and should be a priority to everybody. 

We have the expertise and experience to guide you back to compliance and support you in maintaining this position.
