GIUSP – Updated April 2018
The Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure (GIUSP) was updated as from April 2018 and CORGI Technical Services have launched a two hour in-house training course to help you and your staff meet these requirements.
Introduced in April 2018, 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. Further information is found in the Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM) G/11 with amendments – 11th April 2018 communication.
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 significant changes to previous versions include:
- 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 universal ‘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. This can be arranged at your premises at a date to suit you.
