Gas Safe Register is launching a new competition, open to all Gas Safe registered engineers, to recognise their great work as the nation’s everyday heroes during Gas Safety Week (17-23 September).
To enter the competition, simply share your everyday hero story about how you’ve helped make people ‘gas safe’, or nominate someone else’s, here: bit.ly/WinGSW18 by September 16.
An example could be: “I once stopped a family from suffering carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning by unblocking a vent that they had covered up to stop draughts and educated them on the importance of keeping their vents clear.”
Gas Safe’s favourite stories will be put to an anonymous online vote during Gas Safety Week 2018, and the story with the most votes will win an Anton Sprint eVo3 Kit 3. The kit includes an IR printer, flue probe, cooker probe, flueless gas fire probe, gas leak detector, pressure relief valve, 2x temperature clamps, carry bag and charger – plus Bluetooth communication with the Android app, which allows PDF reports to be emailed to customers.
Gas Safety Week aims to raise awareness around the dangers of faulty gas appliances to help protect families from gas leaks, fires, explosions and CO poisoning. With Gas Safe registered engineers playing an essential role in keeping our nation safe, this competition aims to share and celebrate their work.
