GAS SAFETY

Here are a few basic rules of thumb to ensure your safety:

If You Smell Gas:

  1. Turn off gas supply at meter
  2. Do not use naked flames
  3. Do not smoke
  4. Do not turn electric switches on or off
  5. Open doors and windows
  6. Contact Transco's gas emergency service on
    0800 111 999

Properly installed appliances that are checked regularly should be safe. However, if you notice any of the following, you should switch off the appliance immediately and contact a CORGI registered installer:

  1. Sooting around the appliance
  2. A yellow or orange lazy flame (except real flame gas fires)
  3. Excessive condensation in the room.

Carbon Monoxide:

Carbon Monoxide is invisible, odourless and tasteless and can be produced when a gas appliance has not been correctly installed or maintained or the chimney, flue or air vent becomes blocked. If you experience drowsiness, headaches, nausea or pains in the chest when using a gas appliance, switch off the appliance immediately.  Move into fresh air and contact a doctor.  Mention the possibility of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
Do not use the appliance until it has been checked by a CORGI registered installer.

Be safe. Ensure your gas appliances are checked for safety annually, and only employ a CORGI-registered installer. Don't try to save on safety. 

CORGI produce a selection of leaflets that include information about gas safety, CORGI-registered installers and landlords/tenants.
