Gas Safety Week is a national campaign, the main aim of which is to raise awareness of gas safety, and the importance of having only registered engineers performing gas related jobs in your home. The Gas Safe register is an official database of the gas engineers who are qualified to carry out jobs safely and legally. It is extremely important to check that the engineer performing repairs or maintenance on your gas equipment is on the Gas Safe Register.
Checking if an engineer is registered can be easily done online, by entering their ID number in the check box (click on ‘Check A Gas Engineer‘) available on the Gas Safe Register website. Registered engineers are qualified to carry out jobs such as installing, servicing or repairing gas boilers, fires, a hobs or and gas cookers.
It is extremely important to maintain gas appliances regularly in order to prevent leaks which can lead to fire or deadly carbon monoxide leaks. JobLogic offers a fully integrated planned maintenance scheduler and it is extremely easy to link assets to sites.
– Any work performed on an asset will be recorded against that asset
– Relevant safety certificates will be held against the asset
– Easily searchable histories
– Quickly link assets to sites
– Job status tracking
– Equipment + Assets Service history
– Jobs raised by site or specific customer
– Quick view of outstanding works
– Automatic job generation
The planned maintenance scheduler provides full control over all the planned and scheduled jobs. The service desk allows for the workflow status to be monitored from start to finish.
The software can also be used to create electronic, printable Gas Safety Certificates. Work is performed on the site, and all important data is sent wirelessly to the office. There is no need to be physically present several times a day at the office, since the JobLogic allows you to stay updated and get all the information engineers need while on the go.
JobLogic software is hosted on ultra secure servers, so there is no need to worry about costs related to installing software on your computer or device. Most importantly, all data is protected through High Level Security, daily backups and virus software. By using the application, keeping track of annual service reminders is also easier than ever.
We’re proud to be supporting Gas Safety Week 2014, which takes place over the course of a week between 15th and 21st September. We’ve pledged our support because as writers of software for gas installers, we’re always eager to support safety initiatives in the plumbing and heating industry.
This annually held event is designed to promote a more safety conscious industry and consumer base. Organised by the Gas Safe Register, the event promotes the importance of taking care of appliances, which includes correct installation and regular servicing.
Badly fitted and poorly serviced gas appliances have been the cause of many otherwise preventable fatalities over the years. Around 40 people in England and Wales die needlessly from carbon monoxide poisoning every year, as well as thousands of cases of carbon monoxide poisoning.
The gas cannot be seen, tasted or smelt, yet has the potential to kill in minutes with no warning whatsoever. The only way to help protect your family is with the use of a carbon monoxide detector and ensuring that anyone who installs or maintains your gas appliances is Gas Safe registered.
Our gas installer software is designed for Gas Safe engineers to use in the field. They can easily create gas safety certificates for both domestic landlords and commercial applications. Engineers can collect all form data electronically including signature capture. Back in the office, JobLogic offers a powerful asset management system which is great for scheduling maintenance tasks.
To show our support for Gas Safety week, we’re publishing a series of articles, infographics and videos to promote ways companies can be Gas Safe. From the JobLogic twitter account, we will be tweeting and re-tweeting using the hashtags #GasSafetyWeek and #GasSafetyWeek2014. Please follow @JobLogicUK and show your support for a safer nation.

Does gas safety concern you? Now you can see how safe your area is compared to others using this site: http://www.staygassafe.co.uk/
It shows you where unsafe appliances have been found on an easy to navigate map. Where you see a number displayed, more than one incident occurred in that area and you can zoom in to find the exact location of each incident. Accidents often occur because service intervals are not adhered to.
The Gas Safe Register is working to protect you and your family. If you need work done on your property and it involves gas, then the contractor must be on the Gas Safe Register. If they’re not on the register, then they’re operating illegally. If you think that a gas fitter is operating illegally, you can call Gas Safe Register on 0800 408 5500 to report them.
JobLogic works closely with service and maintenance companies to help ensure Gas Safe registered contractors make their servicing appointments on time, complete risk assessments accurately and keep meticulous records.
