The Gas Safety Regulations 1998 (Installation & Use) are a crucial legal requirement for all gas-fired equipment. These regulations mandate that you maintain the system safely to prevent any risk or injury on the premises. This includes not only the gas appliance but also the pipework or flue at any place of work. Hodgkinson Bennis is fully authorised to provide commercial gas safety landlord certificates in compliance with these regulations.

PRESSURE SYSTEM SAFETY TESTS
For steam boilers and high-pressure hot-water systems, the regulations are more onerous. You’ll need to apply two sets of tests to meet the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations 2000 (PSSR). The PSSR aims to prevent serious injury from the hazard of stored energy in pressure systems. It covers the safe design and use of such systems to avoid the failure of an entire system or one of its component parts.
1 / ANNUAL INSURANCE INSPECTION
We can remove, service, overhaul and refit valves in various materials. We prepare, clean and carry out repairs to the boiler shell or tubes, and thoroughly test the hydraulic systems. If required, we can calibrate any safety valves. And we’ll check all types of heat exchanger and calorifier.
2 / FIVE-YEAR NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING (NDT)
We will help you prepare thoroughly for the NDT inspection. We will remove any refractory brickwork and/or lagging as required and prepare all the welds for testing, working alongside the inspectors until they are satisfied. In addition, we will replace the refractory and any removed lagging.
