Gas Safe Technical Bulletin 140…

The following is a summary of recommendations that CEDA has issued to its members based on best practice and clause 14 of the standard. – When working on gas equipment in any kitchen for the very first time. – When carrying out routine maintenance of gas equipment. – After installing any additional or replacement gas fired item. In any kitchen where it is suspected that the extraction/make up air system may not be working satisfactorily i.e. very hot working environment, high levels of condensation, catering staff complaining of working environment. Finally, the bulletin introduces a second ceiling for CO2 levels of 5000ppm whereas CAIS 23(1) stipulated that anything over 2800ppm was considered a problem. Prior to the publishing of TB140, if an engineer found that the CO2 level was above 2800ppm he would advise the person responsible for the installation to open windows and doors and shut down appliances until the level has settled below 2800ppm. If this was achieved, the installation would be considered ‘At Risk’ under the Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure and the person responsible would have to sign to say that they took responsibility. If it was not possible to reduce the CO2 levels below 2800ppm, then the installation would be considered ‘Immediately Dangerous’ under GIUSP and the engineer would have to turn off the supply and report the installation. This was a common sense approach which erred on the side of safety. The wording of TB140 is similar to that in CAIS 23(1), however the flow chart which is appendix 1 now introduces a second ceiling of 5000ppm at which an installation automatically becomes ‘Immediately Dangerous’. This suggests that anything between 2800 and 5000ppm cannot be ‘Immediately Dangerous’ and is therefore ‘At Risk’. This could be interpreted by a caterer as OK to carry on using once the engineer has left the premises. The CEDA Technical Steering Group considers this to be misleading and could lead to unsafe situations. CEDA and colleagues from CESA have registered their concern about the bulletin with Gas Safe Register and asked for it to be withdrawn until a clearer document can be published. Gas Safe Register has stated that they cannot just withdraw the bulletin, but they have agreed to convene a meeting to hear the concerns and hopefully act upon them.” Full story can be found Here

Gas Safe Crackdown

15 commercial kitchens in the Hampshire district of Hart have been closed this summer after council inspectors found they had gas leaks or unsafe gas appliances. Hart District Council began a project in May to identify unsafe gas appliances and pipework in catering establishments across the district. Figures released by the council suggest local food outlets are in dire need of help from suppliers and distributors to ensure they are complying with the latest gas guidelines when using commercial catering equipment.       Out of 50 inspections of gas appliances that have now taken place, eight premises were closed by the Gas Emergency Service due to gas leaks. Another seven were closed either voluntarily or through the service of a prohibition notice. Six improvement notices were also served where equipment was found to be ‘at risk’. In addition, two unregistered gas engineers were found to be working in the area and another two were working on appliances for which they were not qualified. The number of companies failing gas inspections is particularly concerning given that all commercial catering premises were written to before the inspections took place, informing them of the campaign and their obligations to make sure that gas installations and appliances were safe. Councillor John Kennett, portfolio holder for community safety, licensing and environmental health, said: “The Council prefers to guide and educate kitchen operators about ensuring that their equipment poses no dangers but when they take no notice of advisory letters then we have a duty, to both employees and members of the public, to ensure that premises are safe.”   Visits were carried out in conjunction with Gas Safe engineers with prohibition notices being served where appliances were considered immediately dangerous.
