If you work with Domestic Gas fires or boilers, the rules regarding your work are changing.
You will need to be competent in the use of an Electronic Combustion Gas Analyser by the 1st April 2012.
Gas Engineers all over the country are currently in the process of completing their Combustion Performance Analysis, CAP1, assessment now required to comply with the new regulation.
The Strategic Management Board has said that there is probably going to be a rush at the last minute as the deadline gets closer. If this is the case it may be wise to get your assessment done as soon as possible.
Carbon Monoxide poisoning has increasingly become commonplace due to faulty or dangerous heating appliances. This means the heating engineers ability to competently check the safety of the appliances is absolutely essential. This has led the government to introduce the legal requirement that all Gas Service Engineers are certified in the safe use of a Flue Gas Analyser.
If you are a Gas Service Engineer and have this assessment coming up, take a look at our range of Flue Gas Analysers:
