There is no escaping the fact that catering businesses that use both natural gas and LPG appliances are legally obliged to have them annually tested for safety, and caterers must be able to prove that they are safe by having adequate documentation completed by a suitably qualified gas safe engineer.
Catering appliances needing annual gas certificates could include your: Fryer, oven, grill, char grill, tandoori oven, combination oven,hot cupboard and bains marie.
After a spate of gas explosions in restaurants in the North of England a few years ago, some of which caused serious injuries to staff members, Environmental Health Officers began to look into general safety standards both locally and nationally. Nowadays, requests for gas safety certification are routine and arise from caterers in all sectors of the industry.
We are certified by Gas Safe to test both Natural Gas and LPG kitchen appliances and installations, including interlocks, flexible gas hoses, control gear and pipe work. We regularly attend schools, nursing homes, care homes, pubs, restaurants, nightclubs, hotels and general food service premises. Once safety and testing work is complete we issue CP42 Gas Safety Certification documents in both electronic and hard copy formats.
