Ferroli is in full support of Gas Safe Register’s second annual Gas Safety Week (September 10-16), which aims to drive home the crucial message to homeowners that they must ensure their gas appliances are fitted correctly and serviced regularly.
Tucked away in a cupboard, boilers are too often left to chug away on their own, but ‘out of sight out of mind’ can lead to fatal consequences, claiming around 50 lives a year, with thousands more suffering from poisoning or injuries caused by explosions.
These statistics are unnecessarily high so it’s the responsibility of manufacturers and installers to make customers aware of how simple it is to protect themselves.
Keeping up to date with training on safety is essential for all installers. Customers who put their trust in a Gas Safe registered engineer expect that person to be fully informed on current safety issues, but it’s an area that is easy to allow to lapse, however unintentionally.
Ferroli’s fully equipped training centre in Burton-upon-Trent offers installers the chance to brush up on core safety skills, as well as valuable instruction on how to correctly install Ferroli’s range of high efficiency condensing boilers.
As with all technology, boilers are being continually developed and improved so it’s vital that the people responsible for fitting them in customers’ homes are fully informed on what’s changed. Don’t leave it to chance.
