GIUSP – NEW course – Are you ready for the 1st July deadline?
The new Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure (GIUSP) will be enforced from July 1st 2016 and CORGI Technical Services have launched a NEW two hour internal training course to help you and your staff prepare for the deadline.
Introduced in July 2015 and amended in December 2015, Edition 7.1 of the GUISP Procedure provides guidance to Gas Safe registered businesses and engineers for dealing with unsafe situations in domestic and non-domestic premises supplied with natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas.
From 1st July 2016 Gas Safe Register will be inspecting to this version of the Procedures.
The key message for the regulations is that “the priority for Gas engineers when encountering an unsafe situation is to safeguard life and property. It is essential that Gas engineers are able to identify Gas equipment which presents a danger.”
The updates include significant changes to previous Procedures:
- The NCS (Not to Current Standards) category has been removed
- In certain circumstances, turning off the gas to an At Risk (AR) installation won’t remove the risk or danger. They now have their own amended procedure engineers must follow
- The GIUSP no longer lists installations that are RIDDOR reportable. However, you are still required to notify under 11(1) or 11(2) or RIDDOR
- A ‘Danger Do Not Use’ warning label has been introduced.
To enable engineers and businesses to implement the necessary processes, CORGI Technical Services have developed a TWO hour internal training package to inform and update staff so that you are ready for 1st July 2016. This can be arranged at your premises at a date to suit you.
