Do you have an opinion on unregistered gas installers? Think the ACS Scheme could be improved?
Got some bright ideas about how to raise carbon monoxide awareness? Gas Safe Register needs you!
The official gas registration body is launching an in-depth report into the past, present and future of gas safety.
Known as the ‘Decade Review’, the report will consider the opportunities and challenges faced across the industry in the last 10 years, as well as looking forward in to the next decade.
The new research follows on from the 2006 ‘Frontline Review’ which identified the strengths and weaknesses of the gas industry and how it could work towards improved domestic gas safety in the future, exploring areas such as:
- CO risk, patterns and awareness
- The future of ACS
- Gas installer competence schemes
- Industry legislation
- The challenge of illegal installers
- Landlords’ duties
- The way forward for the gas industry.
Engineers, sole traders, registered businesses, training and assessment companies, charities and national energy companies are all invited to voice their thoughts as part of the pan-industry review, which is set to be the largest and most comprehensive study of its kind.
Scott Darroch, project director for the review, said:
“This consultation will help the team at Gas Safe Register shape, and continue to improve, the service we offer by giving us an in-depth insight into what the industry needs. In such a fast-changing industry that has seen many developments over the last decade, including new legislation and technology, the intent is for the ‘Decade Review’ to be a useful report that the whole industry can turn to.”
There will be various different ways to contribute, including through focus groups and online surveys.
More details are set to be announced soon about how to take part. The results will be published next summer.
