Gas safety is important all year round, but it is not always a household’s top priority. Gas Safety Week - coordinated by Gas Safe Register - provides a platform for the gas industry, consumer organisations and individuals to focus all communications about gas safety in one week, generating interest in the media and having a greater impact amongst the public.
