What is the Gas Safe Register? 

Wondering what the Gas Safe register is? Well, you're in the right place, so let us explain! Simply put, the Gas Safe register is a list of all U.K businesses or engineers that hold all the essential qualifications to legally work with gas appliances. There are plenty of appliances throughout our home where a Gas Safe registered engineer is the appropriate individual to work on them; such as gas boilers, gas fires, gas cookers, gas hobs etc. Businesses and engineers that are on the Gas Safe register are subject to regular quality checks on the work they have conducted; therefore, if their work is considered substandard and below the expectations of Gas Safe, they can expect to be suspended from the register or even totally removed.
