  • Always check the engineer fitting appliances such as boilers, hobs and radiators is Gas safe registered.
  • When having building work done, check the gas fitter credentials by looking at their ID card or contacting the Gas Safe Register - don’t rely on your builder or project manager to do it on your behalf.
  • Ensure your gas appliances are checked annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer to check they are operating correctly and safely.
  • Only use gas appliances for their intended purpose for example, don’t use a cooker to heat a room. 
  • Buy an audible carbon monoxide detector for your property and make sure it is maintained correctly.
