Leicester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 21, 2009 -- As winter is not far away, the requirement is again upon us to make sure that heating appliances installed into any commercial premises are maintained to meet with current health and safety requirements, and manufacturer specifications. Using appliances that are badly adjusted will cause you to lose money over the next 35 weeks but also if those appliances are not legal you are putting employees at risk.
The Health & Safety Commission, state in Regulation 35 of the Approved Code of Practice and Guidance that under the Duties of the Employersâ Gas Safety (Installations and Use) Regulations Act 1998, "It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure that any gas appliance, installation of gas pipe work or flue at any place of work under his/her control is maintained in a safe condition as to prevent injury to any person". Non compliance is a criminal offence dependent upon the severity and may lead to litigation and large fines or imprisonment.
