Title: Ensure that you are using a QUALIFIED engineer!

A Dumfries & Galloway carehome provider has been fined for allowing unqualified handymen to illegally install two gas boilers at the premises in Sanquhar. This led to the emergency evacuation of residents of the Queensberry Care Home and an investigation by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).At Dumfries & Galloway Sheriff Court on 28 May, Harveys Healthcare was fined £55,000 after pleading guilty to a breach of Regulation 4 of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 and Section 3(1) of the Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974.

Harveys Healthcare of Laurie’s Wynd, Sanquhar admitted failing to ensure that the men they employed to replace the central heating boiler were qualified and registered with the Gas Safe Register.

HSE discovered that the Gas Safe registered heating engineer whose name appeared onthe gas safety certificates had no knowledge of the work in the premises. The certificates also contained inaccuracies relating to the engineer’s postcode and registration numbers.

Paul Johnston, chief executive of Gas Safe Register, said: "In the right hands gas is safe, but gas work should only ever be undertaken by a suitably qualified and competent Gas Safe registered engineer. In order to become Gas Safe registered, gas fitters have to demonstrate their competence to recognised training and accreditation bodies and the public should always ensure that whoever is carrying out gas work can prove they are registered. Every registered engineer has an ID card that can be used to check they are who they say they are, and shows the kinds of gas work they are qualified to carry out"
