Building firm owner in court for dangerous gas work

The former owner of a Shropshire building firm has landed in court after carrying out illegal and dangerous gas work at two homes.

What happened?

An investigation by the Health and Safety Executive found that Jonathan Taylor had carried out gas work on two separate occasions without being a member of the Gas Safe Register, as the law requires.

What was the outcome?

44-year-old, Jonathan Taylor, pleaded guilty to five breaches of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 as an unregistered gas fitter. He was also ordered to pay £6,296.35 in costs, given a four month sentence for the five charges, suspended for 12 months and ordered to serve 150 hours committee service.

HSE Inspector David Kivlin said:

“Those who undertake gas work must be on the Gas Safe Register,
and anyone who works on gas appliances without
being registered is working illegally.

“Mr Taylor had previously been a member of the Gas Safe Register but his
membership had lapsed and he was no longer registered. This case
highlights the need for householders to check the credentials
of anyone working at their property.”
