Gas safety - are you getting it right?01/07/15
Over the last few years the housing sector has seen the Regulator intervene where it has found organisations have
exposed tenants to the risk of a “serious detriment”. This is where the Regulator has perceived that organisations have
not tackled areas such as gas safety in a way the Regulator would expect. This can lead to the downgrading of an
organisation’s Governance rating with the Regulator.
Whilst this has been viewed as quite harsh in certain instances, the Regulator continues to carefully monitor this area
and sees this as an area where it can exercise its regulatory muscle. Boards must understand the importance of robust
policies and procedures being in place, particularly in relation to health and safety of its residents.
