Most people will be familiar with Corgi as the standard by which gas engineers measure themselves, and will know that “Are you Corgi-registered” is the question to ask. However, from 1 April 2009 Corgi are no longer performing this role, which has been taken up by the Gas Safe Register, which aims to champion the cause of gas safety in the UK which, in their opinion, is too much taken for granted. In short, NEVER DIY when it comes to gas - even an apparently simple job of connecting a gas hose to a bayonet fitting should be done by a professional who can check for leaks. Look for the distinctive yellow logo to ensure you are getting the best service from a fully trained engineer.

As Gas Safe’s chief executive Pete Elridge points out:

“As the new hallmark for gas safety in Great Britain, Gas Safe Register will make it much easier for the public to be gas safe because in the wrong hands, gas can kill. Our message is simple. To keep you and your family safe, always use a Gas Safe registered engineer when you have any gas work done in your home.”

Their very clear website offers good advice on gas safety, along with a feature enabling consumers to locate Gas Safe Registered engineers locally.
