Its Gas Safety week from the 16th – 22nd September, organised by the Gas Safe Register to raise awareness of gas safety and the need for consumers to make sure they choose Registered engineers. This year, the Gas Safe Register has launched a tool kit for installers to help promote the scheme, which in turn has business benefits – 18% of companies that took part in Gas Safety Week last year reported an increase in work.
The toolkit includes Gas Safety Week logo’s and messages to update marketing materials with; such as fliers and websites, plus tips to maximise this event: spreading the word through twitter and Facebook and promoting gas safety to internal staff, via intranets and emails.
Logic4training is supporting the campaign, urging all of its ACS trained customers to highlight the dangers to homeowners, while making sure that they always show their Gas Safe Register ID card.
Every year, thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, which can be caused by unsafe central heating systems, gas cookers or gas fires.
Let you customers know these tips to keep their families safe:
- Make sure gas appliances have a regular service and a gas safety check every 12 months
- Install an audible carbon monoxide alarm
- Look out for warning signs that your gas appliances aren’t working correctly e.g. lazy yellow or orange flames instead of crisp blue ones, black marks on or around the appliance and too much condensation in the room
- Make sure only a Gas Safe registered engineer works on your gas appliances. Illegal gas fitters can put your life at risk.
Always show your Gas Safe Register ID card to help raise awareness of the Gas Safe Register and position your-self as a reputable and trained installer.
