CP7 Gas Equipment Safety Checks - The safe use of Oxy-fuel gas equipment

BCGA Code of Practice

As detailed within the British Compressed Gas Association’s CP7 document, Gas welding and cutting equipment should be maintained under the Pressure Systems Safety Regulations, and detailed in the Health and Safety at work act 1974 equipment should be “Suitable” “maintained” and “Inspected”. The safe use of Individual Portable or Mobile Cylinder Gas Supply Equipment obligates the duty holder to check that regulators and flashback arrestors are checked annually, dependant on use, it may, in some circumstances need to be more frequent, and must be replaced by the manufacturers recommended replacement date.

Checks need to be undertaken by a person who has sufficient training and qualifications in the use of oxy-fuel gas equipment as well as theoretical knowledge of the functioning of the equipment, the properties of the gas used, the potential defects and hazards that may occur and their importance and safety of the equipment.

Engweld gas equipment safety checks are carried out by our own fully trained inspectors to BCGA CP7 and certified by HSE in INDG 381.

Our inspections include:-

  • Leak and functionality testing of regulators, flashback arrestors, hoses, associated fittings and blowpipes.
  • A comprehensive written report issued with the inspector’s findings.
  • A certificate issued when all equipment is deemed satisfactory and compliant.

Please note: There may be additional charges which you need to pay for if it's found equipment or parts need to be replaced. The gas inspection engineer will inform you of this once the inspection is complete but these would need to be paid for over the phone with your local branch before the engineer leaves.
