To spread the awareness, Gas safe register has created a new campaign to encourage everyone to check the Register before an engineer works on the gas appliances in their homes.
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.
The Gas Safe Register makes sure the engineers on the Register are safe by inspecting the gas work they have carried out.
Last year, Gas Safety Superheroes started the #RegardTheCard trend after finding out how many customers were putting their homes at risk from illegal gas work. If you’re not familiar with #RegardTheCard, find out more here.
The new “Don’t cut corners” campaign aims to do something similar to the Regard the card campaign, reminding the public and the professionals of the significance of Gas Safe Register.
How Can You Get Involved?
Gas Safe Register would like you to share your photographic evidence of trivial DIY fails and serious gas horrors with the hashtag #Dontcutcorners to reinforce the reason to use a Gas Safe Registered Engineer.
