Gas is generally very safe but in the wrong hands, it can kill.
Always beware of illegal gas engineers,
they are not only bad for you the public, but they also give the rest of the industry a bad reputation too.
Gas Safe Register has developed an accurate profile of those most likely to be involved in illegal gas work.
More than half (57%) are sole traders and a third
(33%) work in companies employing fewer than four people.
As well as carrying out gas work,
many also undertake plumbing jobs (90%),
bathroom fitting (81%), kitchen fitting (67%),
general building (43%) and electrical work(43%).
Gas Safe Register believes a higher percentage of illegal gas engineers advertise
their services online and in local papers as few if any checks for registration are carried out.
In contrast, directories such as Yellow Pages and Thompson Local check for registration,
so few illegal gas engineers workers advertise their services as for example,
‘Gasfitters, Gas Plumber and Gas Engineers.
