Gas appliances and regulations training course overview

New to Gas Administration?

This course will give you a brief introduction to the 1998 Gas Safe Regulations, Gas Appliances & RIDDOR reporting.

Carbon monoxide (CO) leaking from badly installed or maintained gas appliances kills approximately 40 people each year. Many others also suffer ill health. Our course helps you learn more about the symptoms of  CO poisoning and how to prevent it.

Ensuring housing is safe and complies with legal requirements is a must for any social landlord. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 specifically deal with the duties of landlords to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants’ use are safe.

Our course gives people working in housing and property the skills to understand the regulations, to apply them to different types of domestic gas appliances, and to rectify any contravention of the regulations.  The course is suitable for non technical administrators and clerical staff.

What the course covers

  • Government regulations
  • Gas Acts, Building Acts, Water Act
  • Gas appliances – flueless, open-flue, balanced flue, ventilation, locations
  • Unsafe situations procedure
  • Maintaining gas pipework, flues and appliances
  • Gas safety checks.

There is also a practical assessment leading to a certificate and exam, including practical work.

Who should attend

Building surveyors, technical officers and housing staff with a basic technical knowledge who are involved in dealing with contractors in regard to gas safety inspections.
