As a mobile caterer you’ll already appreciate the importance of LPG safety, but you might have noticed that it can be tricky to find a gas engineer that you trust. Some gas engineers have been known to bend the rules (so we’ll clear those rules up for you quickly now).
What the law says (The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998)
What qualifications could an engineer have?
These are the different types of qualifications that gas engineers can hold. It's your job to make sure you employ an engineer with the appropriate qualifications for your catering product.
How do you know if the engineer is qualified?
It's really easy to check online, on the Gas Safe register, searching by name or area.
When you have selected an individual engineer, look for 'catering' under 'non-domestic area of work' and then search within that section to see if the engineer has the appropriate mobile catering 'tickets' (qualifications) to work on your appliances. Remember that has to include for each type of appliance.
