The Gas Industry Safety Week gave Johnson & Starley the opportunity to talk with the Shadow Minister for Work and Pensions about their continual commitment to Gas Safety, Training and the environment.

The Johnson & Starley stand was visited by the Shadow Minister for Health and Safety, Stephen Timms MP who discussed with Chris Yates, Managing Director about how the company was promoting Gas Safety.

Chris commented ‘Gas Safety is a major priority for us, from ensuring our units are built to the highest possible standards to maintaining a comprehensive training programme for our installers covering all aspects of Warm Air and gas boiler installations and maintenance’ ‘This way we are focusing not only on the safety of the public and making them aware of the potential dangers of Gas Appliances if not correctly serviced but also raising awareness throughout our installers of our best practice, safety check and servicing programmes’

The exhibition was hosted by High Peak MP Andrew Bingham in the Houses of Parliament. During the launch the Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP, Shadow Minister for Work and Pensions, gave a key note speech saying ‘The Gas Industry Safety Week launch demonstrates that safety for employees and the people they protect is key to the gas industry. Seeing the initiatives on show demonstrated to me the hard work GISG and its members put into keeping the industry safe, I am committed to the view that all the regulations on gas safety should be up to date’.
