Energy Assets Observes Gas Safety Week 2021

Energy Assets Observes Gas Safety Week 2021

The ongoing global pandemic has presented multiple obstacles to our industry, but we are proud to say that Energy Assets has risen to the challenges that have faces us since March 2020.

As a response to the COVID-19 crisis we developed and applied new working practices to our gas meter exchange and installation operations to ensure the continued safety of our engineers and our customers.

These working practises included alterations to travel to site, personal hygiene, PPE, social distancing, and the use of sanitisation equipment for our gas engineers whilst on the road and on-site.

“Our top priority has always been, and always will be, safety.” Says Glen Dale, Head of Compliance at Energy Assets. “Initially our focus was on maintaining our services to emergency and critical clients, such as hospitals. However, through the implementation of new working practises we were quickly able to mobilise our teams throughout Great Britain for all of our clients – all within safe parameters.”

Due to the nature of the continuing pandemic, the arrangements we made early last year have remained in place and have continually evolved to meet safety standards, business needs, and governmental guidance.

Exceptional teamwork has led to the smooth execution of plans, such as advanced communications, updated risk assessments and responsive planning processes have helped us safeguard our engineers and the public whilst ensuring safe operations throughout.

We utilise a dedicated COVID-19 portal with constantly updated information and guidance for all team members, along with mandatory online training modules for everyone engaged in the metering business.

At Energy Assets, we encourage everyone to promote gas safety and as such will be sharing helpful content on our website and LinkedIn throughout the week. You can follow this by using #EverythingConnects and #GSW21.

The Gas Safe Register is the official register for legally qualified engineers. You can find a registered engineer in your area by visiting the Gas Safe Register website. Please find below some top tips from the Gas Safe Register to help keep you safe.

  • Know the symptoms of CO poisoning; headaches, nausea, breathlessness, collapse, dizziness and loss of consciousness.
  • If you smell gas or think there might be a gas leak, call the free 24-hour national gas emergency number immediately on 0800 111 999.
  • Never attempt to work on a gas appliance yourself, always seek the help of a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer who can work on your gas cooker, boiler or fire in a safe way.
  • Don’t cut corners – only employ a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer when having gas work carried out in your home.
  • Always ask to see your engineer’s Gas Safe ID card. Make sure you check the back of the card, which will state which gas appliances they are qualified to work on.
