HSE LogoA Bedford man has been put on curfew for safety failings after installing an LPG fuelled boiler at a domestic property.

Kalimat Ramalingum was not Gas Safe registered and had no recognised qualifications to carry out the work.

Luton Magistrates’ Court heard how, in June 2013, Mr Ramalingum, 58, claimed to be Gas Safe registered to the homeowners and filled out and provided them with a landlord/homeowners gas safety record which had details of another Gas Safe registered engineer. He carried out work on the boiler that was substandard and later deemed “At Risk”.

Mr Ramilingum, (also known as David Kalimat, David Badi and David Ramalingum), of Denmark Street, was prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and pleaded guilty to Regulation 3(3) of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.

He was ordered to wear a tag and put on curfew for four months between 6pm and 8am, pay £450 compensation to the homeowners and contribute £500 towards HSE costs.
