Are you preparing for Gas Safety Week?

When: 12th September 2014

Gas Safety Week, organised by Gas Safe Register, is taking place 15th – 21st September and Stroma Certification is supporting the campaign by encouraging tradespersons working with natural gas to ensure they’re Gas Safe-registered, and by helping certified installers to advise customers about gas safety in the home.

Incorrectly installed and poorly serviced gas appliances can cause significant harm such as carbon monoxide poisoning. Our Green Deal Installer scheme (GDI) includes measures to ensure safety when installing Natural Gas, where Gas Safe compliance is required.

Gas Safety Best Practice for Customers

As a Gas Safe installer certified under our schemes, it is important your customers are made aware of gas safety in and around the home.

  • Check gas appliances annually. Gas appliances should be checked and serviced regularly by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Customers can set reminders by visiting
  • Check their engineer is Gas Safe registered. Stroma provide accreditation for Natural Gas installers through our industry-approved certification schemes. By becoming a Stroma GDI-certified installer, you can ensure your customers are confident in the quality and safety of your work.
  • Check for warning signs that appliances aren’t working correctly. This can easily be achieved by the householder assessing flame colour (e.g. lazy yellow or orange flames instead of crisp, blue flames), by checking for black marks on or around the appliance, and assessing the level of condensation in the room.
  • Know the six signs of carbon monoxide poisoning – headaches, dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, collapse and loss of consciousness.
  • Check they have an audible carbon monoxide alarm. This will alert them if there is carbon monoxide in their home.

Join us in being part of Gas Safety Week this September and help make customers more aware. For more information about Gas Safety Week, visit Gas Safe Register.
