Gas Tag

Gas Tag is a new form of technology, designed to combat the 1.1 million illegal gas installations, which are putting millions of Britons at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires, and explosions. The Gas Tag app does away with the current old-fashioned and untrackable recordkeeping and replaces it with geo-tagged, time-stamped and photo-verified evidence of all work carried out. The app is free to download for all Gas Safe-registered engineers and can be used when carrying out work in any property with a Gas Tag subscription. The user-friendly system guides engineers through data fields which automatically populate LGSRs. This saves engineers countless hours on repetitive paperwork and lets them get on with the job they’re trained to do. Engineers can also access the previous work history of each Gas Tag property via the app. This helps identify and troubleshoot issues with appliances more quickly. All of the information is uploaded to a centralised portal where landlords, homeowners and housing associations can monitor the data through a cockpit-style dashboard. The engineer verification feature prevents unregistered gas fitters from recording any work through the system. It is hoped that this will stop rogue installers in their tracks and create more jobs for qualified engineers. Designed with the help of Gas Safe-registered engineers, industry leaders, and user experience experts, the system has been heralded as “the most significant quantum leap in domestic gas safety compliance in 20 years” by the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Carbon Monoxide.
