Get to grips with Gas Safety Week

Age: This is the seventh annual Gas Safety Week, but the official parliamentary launch took place in 2016 at the Houses of Parliament with more than 60 people from organisations across the industry.

Appearance: An explosion if you’re not careful. But seriously, this deadly poison has been dubbed ‘the invisible killer,’ so there isn’t much to see.

So, what’s it all about? Gas Safety Week is an opportunity for installers and customers to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances. The results can be disastrous, leading to gas leaks, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning – all life threatening. Last year, over 5,000 supporters took part in Gas Safety Week to help raise awareness.

Oh ok, sounds good to me, what can I do to help? You can sign up at: www.gassaferegister.co.uk/gassafetyweek to be part of the thousands of other companies and organisations that have committed their support. You should also speak to your customers about gas safety when you’re out and about, letting them know of the dangers and the products that can save them from a pretty sticky situation. Plumb Center stocks a wide range of CO monitoring devices, for example. Pop into a branch and speak to one of our experts who can let you know about the latest products available. Sharing this knowledge with your customers and keeping them up-to-date with new products will have them coming back to you again and again.

So, it’s not just my good looks and charm that keeps my customers coming back? I’m sure you’re very attractive, but your customers will value your expert knowledge and product know-how even more. Customers rely on their installers to provide best practice advice on how to stay safe in their homes. Get to grips with the latest products and let them know what they need to be doing to protect themselves and their families.

When is it again? Between September 18-24, 2017, but this is something you should always be speaking to your customers about.
