Gas safety is a priority. Gas Safe engineers are a necessity. In the event of a gas appliance burning improperly, excess CO is produced. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is an odourless, invisible and deadly substance, however its threat can be limited  by CO alarms, which detect the gas and alerts those nearby. The victims are often residents without functioning CO alarms, who’ve had gas appliances fitted incorrectly.

The 6 main symptoms of CO poisoning are:

  1. headaches
  2. dizziness
  3. nausea
  4. breathlessness
  5. collapsing
  6. loss of consciousness

If you believe you or someone you know is showing the symptoms of CO poisoning, get to fresh air; turn off all gas appliances and leave your home.To prevent harm from CO and other gas dangers, make sure you only use a Gas Safe registered engineer to install your gas appliances. At G&E Training, we train our applicants to the highest standards, you’ll learn exactly how to detect risks and know how to solve them to prevent future danger.

Only Gas Safe registered engineers are allowed to work on the UK’s boilers, gas heating and gas cooking appliances. Help fulfill the gap in Gas Safe registered engineers with a new career in the gas industry. Are you ready for the responsibilities and rewards of becoming a gas engineer?
