CORGI Technical Services and the Travel industry
CORGI was contacted in 2004 by The Specialist Holiday Group which was part of the Thomson Group to advise them on installation of instantaneous gas heaters for holiday accommodation units on campsites throughout Europe.
CORGI designed a system that allowed the appliance to be fitted in a safe manner resulting in the Company to resume selling holidays containing gas water heating appliances.
The Thomas Cook Group recognised the importance of gas safety in holiday accommodation approached CORGI to train their Health and Safety Managers to a competent level to evaluate areas that could be considered an issue. This evolved into working with ABTA and the FTO in compiling a risk assessment procedure for the travel industry which is widely used by the tour operators.
CORGI Technical Services currently support, worldwide the majority of the travel industry by visiting all the countries and completing technical visits compiling reports and recommendations for the hoteliers’ to improve the gas safety of their accommodation and fossil fuel installations.
