Gas Serve NW offers an independent third party Gas Safety audit in the Wirral and Cheshire area. This service involves our Gas Safe Registered engineer arriving at your property and then conducting a check-up on work completed by other gas installers. This is to make sure work completed is up to Gas Safe’s high standards of safety. We also complete a Gas Safety check on gas certificates that have been completed.
This service is available to residential home owners, businesses and publicly-owned organisations such as housing associations and Letting Agents.
Housing associations are under a statutory duty to carry out yearly inspections on their tenants’ gas appliances. Housing associations often outsource this responsibility to third party companies using the usual tender process. The vast scale of properties managed by housing associations means many different contracting companies are selected. This makes it difficult for housing associations to control the quality of work completed.
This is where Gas Serve NW is able to help. Our engineers come out and inspect work completed by your approved contractors. Incompetently completed work means your tenants’ lives are put in danger. If a tenant is injured as a result then you may be called to account for your decision to appoint a particular contractor. Appointing Gas Serve NW to carry out a Gas Safety audit will demonstrate steps you took in complying with your legal duties.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) does not look favourably on landlords or housing associations who neglect their tenants' safety. Since around thirty people die each year due to carbon monoxide poisoning it is not difficult to understand why the HSE adopts this stance. Ensure you are not liable due to the work of incompetent contractors by engaging our Gas Safety audit services in the Wirral and Cheshire area.
Our auditing and quality control checks are second to none. We provide you with a detailed report outlining how well we feel your contractors are performing. If safety concerns are raised you may request your contractor return to the job at their expense and finish the job to a competent standard.
Our engineer arrives at the properties you have selected for an audit and then carries out a full physical strip-down inspection of applicable gas appliances. A full 'contractor performance' report is written up and sent to you soon after.
