In the event of a gas emergency, a trained gas installer must be on call to make safe the situation. Gas emergency services providers, such as the National Grid, employ suitably qualified engineers to assist in unsafe situations.
If this is a role you currently undertake, or an area you’re looking to move into, then you need to complete ACS module, ‘Gas emergency services provider changeover course’ – CODNESP1. A new offering for Logic4training, this course is designed for existing domestic gas engineers, who are up to date with their Core Gas Safety (CCN1).
CODNESP1 specifically covers the required procedure for dealing with gas emergencies downstream of the emergency control valve:
- Installation of pipework and fittings – pipe sizes 28mm to 100mm
- Unsafe situations, use of emergency notices and warning labels
- Operation and positioning of emergency isolation controls and valves (in Non Domestic premises)
- Ventilation/chimney standards (Non Domestic)
- Re-establishing existing gas supply and relight appliances (Non Domestic).
This new course follows in the footsteps of CMDDA1, which is designed for installers specifically dealing with a Carbon Monoxide leak call out, either due to an alarm going off, or signs of CO reported.
