TED! Get down from up there! What do you think you’re doing?
I’m checking the gas meter! I had a funny feeling about it…
I think it’s fine, you didn’t need to climb up that ladder to check it. What gave you the funny feeling?
Well I was reading all about Gas Safety Week last week and it got me worried, so I decided i’d check. All good by me! I think…
I’m glad but maybe think twice before scaling the office again. What did you learn about Gas Safety Week?
It was quite worrying. In the last year alone, 343 people were injured and 10 people died as a result of gas related incidents. Which is why it really important for tenants to take steps and check their system on a regular basis.
What can they do to make sure they’re safe?
Gas appliances need to be checked once a year and serviced by a registered Gas Safe engineer. It’s also important to check their ID card to ensure they are qualified for any work that needs doing.
Also it’s really useful to get a Carbon Monoxide alarm installed, which could potentially save a lot of lives.
Great tips, Ted. Will you come down from that ladder now, please?
No I like it now, I can see my kennel from here!
