Sitra pledges its support for Gas Safety Week

Sitra has pledged its support for Gas Safety Week (15-21 September). This fourth annual Gas Safety Week will see the whole industry coming together to bring gas safety to the forefront of people’s minds. Dangerous gas work can kill, so it is vital that gas appliances are safety checked at least once a year.

In the last year alone, 343 people were injured and 10 people died as a result of gas related incidents.
