Gas Tag recently spoke at the fifth annual Association of Gas Safety Managers Conference, and won the Dragon’s Den Innovation Award.
Held annually in Hinckley, Leicestershire, the conference brings together senior managers responsible for gas safety in housing associations across the UK.
Tim Jack, sales director at Gas Tag, took part in the Dragon’s Den session to showcase the company’s gas safety technology to the 350 delegates, who are collectively responsible for more than 2.5 million homes in the UK. Gas Tag won the contest with 65% of the votes.
Mr Jack, who previously worked for Honeywell, has spent a major part of his career influencing laws and building strong relationships in government across the UK and Europe. He recently joined Gas Tag to continue to help save lives from carbon monoxide poisoning and assist in driving the right behaviours in gas engineers.
Gas Tag is a real-time system to monitor gas safety in homes, and means landlords can access KPI-driven monitoring to ensure their tenants are safe.
Mr Jack said: “It is such a great achievement to win the Innovation Award. I recently joined Gas Tag after 13 years in a global company, which allowed me to see future trends and gaps in gas safety compliance within the social housing sector. I strongly believe that Gas Tag can help address those gaps and become the standard for gas safety across the UK and Europe.”
