Gas organisations and companies around the UK prepare for this year’s Gas Safety Week, taking place 15 to 21 September.
One of the most important events on the industry calendar, Gas Safety Week, co-ordinated by the Gas Safe Register, is designed to raise awareness of the importance of taking care of gas appliances to ensure a safe home.
To mark the week, Baxi is educating its employees about carbon monoxide (CO) and providing tips and hints on how to stay safe, wherever they are.
Baxi managing director Paul Hardy says: “As a business, we are committed to safety – and this includes the safety of our employees as well as our customers and the general public. If we can protect just one person from the effects of carbon monoxide, our efforts will have been worthwhile.”
He adds: “Gas Safety Week is the ideal time to put gas safety at the front of people’s minds by asking them to have their gas appliances checked and make sure they have a CO detector. However, it’s important for people to remember that gas safety isn’t a one week novelty but something to bear in mind all year round. Only then can they really protect themselves and families from harm.”
