Don’t let a scammer into your home. Find out how to spot a FAKE Gas Safe ID Card and keep yourself gas safe.
The Gas safe ID is issued to all Gas Safe Registered engineers. They must carry it at all times when they’re carrying out work.
When you book a boiler service, installation, replacement or other work through Harvey Heating, our Gas Safe registered engineers will have their ID cards on display. If you want to double-check – don’t worry, they won’t be offended!
Ask to see the engineer’s Gas Safe ID card.
Then, look for the following features to check if the ID is legitimate…
Example of a valid Gas Safe ID except for one thing – can you spot it?
Not all gas engineers can work with all types of appliances or carry out all types of gas work. For example, Harvey Heating engineers specialise in domestic installs and appliances. We do not train our staff for non-domestic gas purposes.
Here is a full guide to all domestic categories. Check your engineer is registered to carry out the work you have called them to do. For example, if your engineer is fitting a new boiler, they should be certified to cover ‘Boiler Installs’.
Then, check the expiry date next to the individual qualification. If it is out of date, do not let the engineer into your home.
By law, gas engineers have to be Gas Safe registered to carry out work in the UK, Isle of Man, and Guernsey. If the ID you are shown is not valid, do not let the engineer into your home.
If you think a gas engineer is working illegally, report them on the Gas Safe website, or contact Gas Safe at 0800 408 5500.
We ensure all of our staff are trained and up to date with all Gas Safe licences. When you book with Harvey Heating, rest assured the work carried out is to Gas Safe standards.
