Coinciding with Gas Safety Week, the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council has announced that its boiler manufacturer members have pledged to place gas safety messaging on their boiler packaging.
In response to a demand that has echoed among industry professionals and installers for years, the HHIC boiler manufacturers group has pledged to place the Gas Safety messaging on their respective packaging. The packaging will soon feature messages detailing that gas appliances must be installed by a competent, Gas Safe-registered engineer.
Stewart Clements, Director of the HHIC, said: “Every person working in the gas industry has a responsibility to help raise awareness with consumers of the dangers and risk involved, in allowing somebody who is not trained, qualified, registered or insured, to work on any gas installation.
“HHIC boiler manufacturer members have made this pledge, to place the Gas Safety messaging on boiler packaging, to show their commitment to continually raising Gas Safety awareness, and making it harder for unregistered ‘installers’ to operate in the industry.”
