Advice on gas safety in the home promoted

Have your say

ADVICE on gas safety in the home will be available next Wednesday (September 14).

As part of Gas Safety Week (September 12-18), Gas Safe Register will be hosting a question and answer session at the B&Q store on the Spring Valley Industrial Estate, Braddan.

From 10am to 2pm, experts will be giving advice on the warning signs of dangerous gas appliances and what you should do to protect yourself from gas-related incidents.

There will also be the chance to win carbon monoxide alarms.

Gas Safe Register chief executive Paul Johnston said: ‘Gas Safety Week will act as a reminder to people to take care and be Gas Safe.

‘Our Isle of Man Q&A event is an important way of reaching people with potentially life-saving advice.

‘It is vital people have annual checks on their gas appliances, as badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause dangerous leaks, which can lead to gas fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.’

The Gas Safe Register is the government-approved registration scheme for gas engineers in the UK, Isle of Man and Guernsey.

It aims to protect consumers from dangerous gas work.
