Gas Safe Register Brand

It is in the interest of both the industry and public safety that the Gas Safe Register brand be actively promoted.

Each and every engineer must ensure they present their Gas Safe Register ID card before entering a property, regardless of whether the occupier has requested identification.

Not only does the Gas Safe Register ID communicate trust and credibility, but it is also this card that separates the legal gas installer from the cowboy, as outlined in the Gas Safe Register’s advertising and publicity campaign:

The Gas Safe marketing toolkit is available for download and contains logos, templates and guidance for use. Once registered, visit the Gas Safe Register website.

Promote your reputability and communicate the right message as a fully trained and competent Gas Safe installer on stationery, business cards and vehicle livery.

Be sure to remove any reference to CORGI as this can cause confusion and potentially lets the illegal operative through the door.

Gas Safe Courses

Remember that Gas Safe courses do not exist, and to be Gas Safe registered you must ensure your ACS is up to date.
