A major change to the Gas Industry Unsafe Situations Procedure (GIUSP) came into effect in July. A single message of “Danger Do Not Use”, irrespective of either an “At Risk” (AR) or “Immediately Dangerous” (ID) classification being applied, is aimed at helping customers understand when appliances must not be used. Version 7 of GIUSP became current on 1 July 2015, but Gas Safe Register recognises that registered businesses/engineers will need time to revise their processes, procedures and documentation and carry out necessary internal update training. Therefore, Gas Safe Register will inspect to this version of the Procedure from 1 July 2016, so providing a 12-month lead-in period (businesses are encouraged to adopt the revised procedure as soon as possible). The full text of the revised procedure can be downloaded from Gas Safe Register’s website.
