Gas Safety in Catering Premises
As part of the routine the food safety inspections carried
out by the Food and Safety Team, officers are working
with owners and operators of catering businesses to
raise awareness of the importance of maintaining gas systems and
appliances within their premises.
It is essential that any work on the gas system or appliances is
carried out by a competent and qualified gas engineer, registered
with the Gas Safe Register (formerly Corgi). You must also
check that the engineer is qualified to work on 'non-domestic'
gas systems and appliances.
Each registered gas engineer carries a Gas Safe identification
card, the back of the card shows the types of system and aplliances
the engineer is competent to work on.
