Gas Safety in Social Housing
Sponsor: The Gas Safety Trust
Winner: CORGI Technical Services
They have put in place a comprehensive family of qualifications to ensure managers undertake their role in gas safety management more effectively, ensuring that safety in all social housing complies with all current regulation and legislation.
The judges considered that in addition to putting in the standards framework the safety profile of local Authorities, Housing Associations and Social Housing had been actively raised at Government level.
Runner-Up: The Wheatley Group
Not only have they invested in a tenants training programme but also have introduced employee training and development to ensure their staff have all the relevant qualifications.
In the judges view this represents a long term commitment to gas safety, along with many other initiatives, to raise the awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide. Unfortunately Wheatley Group are unable to be with us today, so the award will be forwarded to them.
