Gas Safety Advice
Five steps you can take to stay safe in your residential park home
If your home displays an NCC badge of approval, you can be reassured that it has been designed with safety in mind. However, it is essential that you take simple steps to ensure both your own and others’ safety:
- Get your gas appliances checked annually
All gas appliances should be serviced annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer to keep them working safely and efficiently. This will reduce both the chance of exposure to Carbon Monoxide and running costs.
NB: The law requires an annual gas appliance check to be done if you let out the accommodation.
- Don’t block the ventilation
Gas-burning appliances need a constant supply of air in order for complete combustion to occur and to keep you safe. Suitable ventilation is designed into homes to ensure your safety. If you block that ventilation, it could lead to Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
Stay safe: never block the ventilation!
- Use a Gas Safe registered engineer; never do-it-yourself
Do not let unqualified people work on gas appliances; always use a Gas Safe registered engineer, qualified either in natural gas and/or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
- Make sure that they have the appropriate registration for the gas used in your appliances
- Check the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing – you can find this information on the back of their ID card
- Ask for the gas safety record for the work carried out
Your park manager may be able to recommend a suitable Gas Safe registered engineer. Alternatively to find a Gas Safe registered engineer visit www.gassaferegister.co.uk or call 0800 408 5500.
