10 YEARS OF GAS SAFETY WEEK

It’s been 10 years since the start of Gas Safety Week, from Gas Safe. Since the beginning we have been always very keen to promote this event period, which runs in mid September – appropriately timed for when most people start using their gas heating appliances as the cooler weather approaches.

Here are a number of benefits of visiting the Gas Safety Week website, to learn just a little more about gas safety.

How Safe is Your Area?

One great thing about Gas Safe and Gas Safety Week is the very useful online lookup, where you can find out how many unsafe gas appliances have been identified in your area. This can be a wakeup call for many, and helps you see just how safe (or unsafe!) your area is. You can use this lookup here:
