What is Gas Safe Week?
From Monday, 15th September 2014 to Sunday 21st September, it’s Gas Safe Week.
Gas Safe Week is a 7 day event promoting gas safety throughout the United Kingdom. The yearly event is co-ordinated by the Gas Safe Register, who took over from Corgi as the official industry regulator in April 2009.
Over the course of the week, there will be PR events and adverts designed to draw everyone’s attention to the need to be careful with gas appliances. Every year, thousands of people across the UK are diagnosed with carbon monoxide poisoning, which causes weakness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, dizziness and chest pain. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poising are often mistaken for other illnesses such as food poisoning or influenza.
