More than 121,000 engineers register with Gas Safe

Gas Safe Register has beat its first year registrations target in just two months, by registering more than 56,500 businesses and 121,000 engineers onto its gas scheme.
Anyone carrying out gas work must by law be registered on the Gas Safe Register and comply with the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998.

The registration body, appointed by the Health and Safety Executive to manage the scheme in Great Britain and the Isle of Man, says it has reached not only those registered with the previous Corgi-run scheme but also those who may have left the industry or have been working illegally.

Peter Eldridge, chief executive of Gas Safe Register, said: 'It is a strong vote of confidence in the Gas Safe Register and suggests that engineers and businesses recognise the importance of being registered. We have been very clear that we would operate a robust and clear system and that enforcement and investigation would play a major part'.

He added: 'Gas Safe Registered engineers and businesses also have a role to play in speaking to their own customers, ensuring their advertising and signage carries the new branding and making sure everyone knows how important it is to keep Gas Safe. The brand essentially belongs to the industry and we all have a responsibility to promote it'.
