     Gas Safety Week 15th- 21st September 2014

    Gas Safety Week 2014 is an annual safety week to raise awareness of gas safety and the

    importance of taking care of your gas appliances.

    It is co-ordinated by Gas Safe Register with support from the

    gas industry including retailers, manufacturers,

    consumer bodies and the public.

    Twenty one million households in United Kingdom,

    Isle of Man and Guernsey use gas for heating, hot water and cooking,

    yet we take it for granted that our boilers, cookers and gas fires are safe.

    Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause gas leaks,

    fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning.

    Did you know?

    Every year thousands of people across the UK are

    diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning.

    It is a highly poisonous gas.

    You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can

    kill quickly with no warning.
    Gas Safe Register estimates that there are around 7,500 illegal gas

    fitters operating across the UK and up to 250,000 illegal gas

    jobs may be carried out each year (Gas Safe Register Research 2009).

    Although there is awareness that gas

    appliances need to be safety checked annually

    , 43% of Britons don’t do it, and 10% have gas appliances

    which have never been checked (Gas Safety Week Research 2011).
