Calor shows support for Gas Safety Week

In support of Gas Safety Week, 17 – 23 September 2018, Calor has assigned a number of social media influencers to create short videos with their gas safety tips.

In addition, Calor will also be offering a wide range of support on educating installers on best practice and the benefits of getting LPG qualifications.

Matt Dunford, National Field Sales Manager at Calor, said: “Gas Safety Week is a poignant time of year when the industry takes stock, so we are using it to remind installers not only of the importance of working safely with gas but also, how easy it is to work with LPG and BioLPG.

“With around four million UK households with no access to gas and the launch of the Clean Growth Strategy, there has never been a better time to become LPG qualified and benefit from the additional boiler and maintenance work that is required with a conversion.”

There are two key qualifications on offer to installers, the first of which is CCLP1: Core LPG Safety Training and Assessment. This is a Gas Safety qualification and is required for any engineer wishing to work on LPG installations or further their training. Most candidates are said to complete the course in a few days, covering the basics of working safely with LPG, as well as all relevant safety legislation and standards.

The second important qualification is CONGLP1 (PD): Conversion of Natural Gas to LPG. This allows an installer to convert all of their existing natural gas qualifications to their equivalent LPG counterparts. For example, if you are qualified to safely work on natural gas cookers, this will allow you to work on cookers fuelled by LPG.

Once installers are qualified to work safely with off-grid gases, Calor will support members of its Installer Community with a range of tools, services and incentives.

Calor also offers a range of guides for installers and customers on gas safety and the benefits of using LPG. Installers can direct their customers to to help educate them on gas safety, and learn more about safe switching at

The ‘Find an Installer’ tool on Calor’s website will also allow homeowners to search for an LPG-qualified heating installer and the Installer Community will be able to gain a reward of up to £250 for every LPG customer they recommend who goes on to become a Calor customer.
