Over 1 Million home owners put their safety at risk by not using a Gas Safe Registered Engineer!

Gas Safe have carried out a nation wide survey where they found that over 1 million house holders have used a untrained non registered tardesperson to carry out gas work in their home.

The survey found that 1 in 5 gas appliances were deemed so dangerous they had to be disconnect immediatley. They also found that 16% of people questioned would trust an engineer if they said they were registered with gas safe rather than check their I.D badge/credentials.

NEHPS recommend that before letting an engineer into your property always ask to see an in date gas safe id and or check their credentials on the gas safe website.
