Gas safety at home
One of ESV’s roles is to educate and inform the community about safety issues with gas and electricity, to improve overall safety outcomes for people, property and the environment.
Gas and electricity are inherently dangerous and it’s illegal and potentially fatal for unlicensed and unqualified people to undertake any gasfitting or electrical work.
Homeowners and consumers must always use a qualified and licensed gasfitter and for CO spillage testing, use only a registered or licensed gas fitter who has completed the Master Plumbers CO training course.
