This week it is Gas Safety week, an annual week coordinated by the Gas Safe Register.
The object of the week's campaign is to raise awareness of the danger of poorly maintained gas appliances – which can leak carbon monoxide, cause fires and gas leaks – and encourage the nation to get their gas appliances safety checked by a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer if it's been a year or more since they were last looked at.
