Gas Safety Check

You are required to get your Heat Treatment Equipment safety checked every year

Are the Gas appliances in your workshop compliant with BS6891/BS6172 & BS6173?

Gas appliances that are left unchecked could be dangerous and leaking carbon monoxide

All of your gas appliance / machinery should be safety checked once a year and serviced regularly according to manufacturer’s instructions. If you do not have your gas appliances regularly serviced and safety checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer you could be putting your staff and pupils at risk and in possible danger of carbon monoxide poisoning.

What is a gas safety check?

A gas safety check involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting your machinery. They will check that it is working correctly and will check the following four areas:

  • Gas appliances are on the right setting and burning correctly with the correct operating pressure
  • Harmful gases are being removed from the appliance safely to the air outside
  • That any ventilation routes are clear and working properly
  • All the safety devices are working

The check will identify any defects which require remedial work. You should have a gas safety check every year.
