Gas Safety Week 2021: Help spread the gas safety message

Gas Safety Register is urging businesses to get involved in Gas Safety Week (13-19 September) and join thousands of others in being part of this national safety campaign.

gasBy pledging your support, you can gain access to free materials designed to help you promote gas safety and keep your customers and employees safe.

Here are some of the reasons why businesses take part:

  • Corporate social responsibility – help protect your customers and save lives. Carbon monoxide poisoning affects over a thousand people each year and can be fatal.
  • Looking for new content? You can use the free gas safety materials as part of your own advertising campaign.
  • Improve your brand awareness – all supporters appear on the website.

Each year Gas Safety Register provides a free toolkit full of materials to help you support the week, including social media updates, images, articles, web banners and much more.

Anyone who supported Gas Safety Week 2020 or has pledged their support since will be updated via email and sent the 2021 toolkit as soon as it’s available – there is no need to pledge your support again.
