To mark the start of Gas Safety Week (17-23 September 2018) Calor has assigned a number of social media influencers to create short videos with their gas safety tips.

In addition, Calor is offering a wide range of support on educating installers on best practice and the benefits of getting LPG qualifications.

Matt Dunford, national field sales manager, said: “Gas Safety Week is a poignant time of year when the industry takes stock, so we are using it to remind installers not only of the importance of working safely with gas but also, how easy it is to work with LPG and BioLPG.

“With around four million UK households with no access to gas and the launch of the Clean Growth Strategy, there has never been a better time to become LPG qualified and benefit from the additional boiler and maintenance work that is required with a conversion.”

There are two key qualifications on offer to installers, the first of which is CCLP1: Core LPG Safety Training and Assessment. This is a Gas Safety qualification and is required for any engineer wishing to work on LPG installations or further their training. Most candidates will complete the course in a few days, covering the basics of working safely with LPG, as well as all relevant safety legislation and standards.

The second qualification is CONGLP1 (PD): Conversion of Natural Gas to LPG. This allows an installer to convert all of their existing natural gas qualifications to their equivalent LPG counterparts.

Once installers are qualified to work safely with off-grid gases, Calor supports members of its Installer Community with a range of tools, services and incentives. Just one phone call and Calor will provide expert, on-site advice with tank specification and siting, in order to ensure the highest levels of safety when undertaking the switch to LPG.

Calor also has a wide range of user-friendly guides for installers and customers on gas safety and the benefits of using LPG.

Installers can direct their customers to www.calor.co.uk/carbon-monoxide-safety to help educate them on gas safety and learn more about safe switching at www.calor.co.uk/installer.
