Commercial Gas Safety Inspection (non-domestic) is the official name for a safety certificate that is issued annually by a registered Gas Safe engineer to cover all installation and appliances in your kitchen.
The inspection should include all gas appliances, pipework, extraction systems and gas interlock systems. The inspection will make sure that all details are covered, for example that the canopy has the correct overhand, that the CO & CO2 levels are not too high and that there are no gas leaks on any catering appliance.
The list of safety checks is set down by law and, because they are vitally important, you will need to prove that you are up to date for insurance purposes. If anything should happen to your premises, failure to obtain an up-to-date Gas Safety Certificate and keep a copy on the premises will probably invalidate your insurance policy.
Failure to have an up-to-date Gas Safety Certificate means that not only are you potentially uninsured and putting the health and safety of your employees and customers at risk, but you could also find yourself being prosecuted under Regulation 35 of the “Duties of Employers and self-employed persons” of the Gas Safety Regulations.
We perform gas safety inspections for all types of properties and can also provide landlord safety certificates. We test all appliances, pipework and extraction systems to ensure they meet the legal requirements and conduct any required remedial work to protect you from any potential insurance claims
