Gas Safe Register adds virtual events to inspections

Virtual inspection events have been approved by HSE and are being incorporated into Gas Safe Register’s regular inspection programme, alongside regular on-site inspections and remote technical assessments.

These inspection events involve an online knowledge check completed in exam conditions from the comfort of your own home. You may remember that the Register trialled these events last year with gas engineer volunteers, who provided constructive and useful feedback.

If you receive a letter or email from Gas Safe Register inviting you to a virtual inspection event, you’ll need the following in order to take part:
• Access to the Internet
• A laptop or tablet with a webcam
• A home office space or equivalent – somewhere quiet where you will not be disturbed.

You can find out more about Virtual Inspection Events in your Gas Safe Register online account. Just sign in at: www.gassaferegister. co.uk/engineer/resource-hub/virtual-inspection-events/

If you’re having trouble attending an event or need to re-arrange, please email: VirtualInspectionEvents@gassaferegister.co.uk
