Beware a lapsed engineer…

A recent article ( reported on the case of a gas engineer whose registration had lapsed.

Instead of addressing the lapse and re-registering he continued to work on catering equipment and faked the documents he gave to clients. It took the suspicions of one of his customers to spot the faked documents. The engineer was successfully prosecuted.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you get your catering equipment properly serviced. While it would be nice to think that everyone is above board and honest it pays to keep your eye out for dodgy operators! If you are not sure contact the Gas Safe Register on 0800 408 5577.
