Gas Safety Week
15-21 September is Gas Safety Week. The week is held annually to raise awareness of gas safety and the importance of taking care of your gas appliances.
Did you know?
- Every year thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning. It’s a highly poisonous gas. You can’t see it, taste it or smell it, but it can kill quickly with no warning
- It’s estimated that there are around 7,500 illegal gas fitters operating across the UK and up to 250,000 illegal gas jobs may be carried out each year
- Although there is awareness that gas appliances need to be safety checked annually, 43% of Britons don’t do it, and 10% have gas appliances which have never been checked.
You must make sure that you know what to do in an emergency, and that your gas appliances are regularly checked, to keep you and your family safe.
