Industry standards more accessible for installers

Crucial safety and risk compliance information is more accessible and cost-effective than ever before for installers, says UKLPG.

The Gas Safe Register’s Access to Standards membership scheme allows installers to more easily gain information on safety and risk compliance.

All Gas Safe-registered businesses and installers must ensure they are up to date on technical and legislative changes.

The UK Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association (UKLPG) has been working with BSI (British Standards Innovation) and IGEM (Institution of Gas Managers and Engineers) for the past five years to ensure Gas Safe Registered engineers are able to access information on the guidelines they must work towards to guarantee safety and competency.

This information is outlined within a series of documents known as Industry Standards.

These comprise the latest technical and legislative information and enable installers to access over 80 essential Standards documents covering domestic, commercial and industrial usage for both LPG and natural gas.

These include documents issued by UKLPG, BSI and IFEM, with new applicable Standards added as they are issued or updated.

Installers can access this information directly by joining the Access to Standards scheme.

UKLPG chief executive Rob Shuttleworth commented: “Working with the BSI, IGEM and the Gas Safe Register to ensure our Industry Standards are both more accessible and cost effective for smaller engineering firms and installers has been a rewarding experience.

“We urge those who have no yet joined to sign up to ensure they remain up to date on and compliant with the latest guidelines on domestic, commercial and industrial use for both LP Gas and natural gas.”
