The Gas (Safety & Measurement) Regulations and the Electricity (Safety) Regulations require that most gas and electrical work is only carried out by authorised persons and that the work is certified. Certain classes of gasfitting and prescribed electrical work are defined as “high risk”. Details of the certificate of compliance for gasfitting and details of the record of inspection for PEW must be recorded on this website. These requirements have been in place since 1 July 2013.
These records are not the certification for the work but a selection of some of the information that was recorded in the certification. The website provides public access to key information about work classified as high risk. It assists Energy Safety and the worker registration boards to focus resources on areas that have the potential for the greatest improvement in safety outcomes, as well as the auditing of completed work, and the monitoring of professional competency and safety.
