When you’re looking for the right gas engineer for your business, one of the most important – if not the most important – requirements is for them to be registered with Gas Safe. When they are duly registered, it follows that they are legally allowed to undertake the work you need for your gas appliances. You can check if someone is Gas Safe registered and what their qualifications are by asking to see their Gas Safe identification card. The Gas Safe card contains information about the engineer as well as what kind of work they can do. If they are qualified to carry out specific work, then you can be sure of your choice. But what should you look for when checking the Gas Safe ID? There's a lot of information on the ID card, and you need to know that the information you are looking at is correct. Here's how to understand a commercial gas engineer's Gas Safe ID.
The card’s front
When you are checking out the front of their card, look for the following: the photo of the engineer (make sure it matches!), the start and end or expiration date of the card, the engineer’s licence number, a security hologram, and the name of the business which employs the engineer.
The card’s back
The card’s back contains even more pertinent information, and this is where it gets a bit tricky. You should check whether the engineer is qualified to perform the specific gas work you need, and you should also check that the engineer’s qualifications are updated.
What you should remember
What you should remember when checking out the back of the ID card is this: there are different kinds of gas work offered by a gas company, and all the gas engineers should hold a core component or element to their Gas Safe qualifications. When they have this core component or element, they can then simply add any other type of work they would like to offer, as confirmed by a qualified commercial gas engineer in London from Gasway Commercial.
There are also two main categories for work carried out by engineers: domestic and commercial. A domestic qualification allows gas engineers to work on gas appliances designed for residential or domestic properties, as well as pipework for gas up to 35 millimetres in diameter.
For commercial gas engineers, there are qualifications regarding the size of the gas pipework the engineer can work on and the appliance or gas consumption of the appliance as well as the type of property on which they can work. Note, however, that the property type is not a thorough criterion. For example, if a domestic boiler is fitted in a church, it may, in some cases, still be categorised as a domestic gas appliance even though it is fitted in a property which is not classified as domestic. It is a case by case basis, so it's best to confirm this with the Gas Safe Register directly.
The most common types of work
There are some common types of work a gas engineer can perform, and these include install, commission, service, and safety check (which you can find on the back of the card). Not every engineer or business can offer these services, even if they are registered, so it is essential for you to confirm this with the business or the engineer and the Gas Safe Register.
