Gas Safety regulations are there to keep you and your team happy, safe and comfortable.

What are Gas Safety Regulations and Why Does Your Business Need to Comply?

In any commercial setting, health and safety guidelines are key to keeping everyone working within your workplace safe, happy and comfortable. As part of your business’s risk management processes and procedures, Gas Safety regulations are there to make sure your gas appliances run correctly throughout their lifespan. Because of the potential risks involved, it’s crucial to make your gas safety compliance a priority in order to avoid any faults or minor issues from turning into something more serious. 

The risks of faulty gas appliances

Faulty appliances can cause significant problems if left unattended. We know how important it is to feel comfortable in your working environment, particularly if you have a lot of visitors to your site, you’re working with children or within a more risk-heavy setting. Potential risks caused by gas appliances include; 

  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Limited or no heating or hot water
  • Explosions or fire
  • Gas leaks

Through thorough inspections, adherence to gas safety regulations and and rigorous checks, our reliable Gas Safe engineers make sure your office or commercial site is as safe as possible, making health and safety a priority for your customers, visitors and colleagues.

Why is Gas Safety compliance so important?

You’re legally required to comply with gas safety regulations if your commercial site or property contains any gas appliance, pipework or gas flues. This could be a gas boiler, water heater, laundry or catering appliance, or warm air heater. Even if you use your boiler sparingly, you’ll still need to carry out annual maintenance inspections, alongside any necessary repairs that come up over time. 

Our team approaches your compliance with the utmost care. We know health and safety isn’t just a case of ticking a box, it’s crucial for the welfare of your team and customers. In commercial premises such as schools, factories, office buildings and sports facilities, your safety is crucial. As well as being a legal requirement, compliance measures are there to keep your team and customers working safely, managing risk to any visitors to your site, and avoiding the cost of emergency repairs that an unnoticed fault in your gas appliance could cause.
