Gas Safety Scheme
I’m going to attempt to start writing a blog every fortnight either about how business is going, the work we have been completing or just something which has caught my eye and I have a strong view on. This week I’ll be writing about the new Gas Safety Scheme.
This week there has been huge news coming out for all Gas Safe companies/sole traders or anyone who is currently training to become Gas Safe in the future. Capita UK are bringing out a second accreditation separate from The Gas Safe Register.
With Southern Energy Solutions growing by the month I have to now look at these sort of things with an open mind. Now I have had time to read up about it I am probably just as unsure as my customers. Should I be Corgi, Gas Safe or CGCS?
One thing I am sure on is that the money Capita has spent setting up this scheme, would have been better spent elsewhere. For example, cracking down on illegal gas fitters throughout the UK. This is a HUGE problem- around one million homes a year are put at risk due to this. I see it every single working day and so do our engineers.
We will be looking at the pros and cons behind this scheme, but of course make the best decision based on our customers. We always want to give you a better experience when using Southern Energy Solutions.
