CORGI headlines as gas safety experts at ASCP Scottish Safety & Compliance Conference
CORGI Technical Services is set to take centre stage at the ASCP’s Scottish conference and exhibition, as the gas and electrical experts shine a light on safety and compliance within Scotland.
Sharing essential updates on current legislation, CORGI’s technical safety manager Kevin Winship, who is a leading voice in gas safety in Scotland, will deliver a session on necessary provisions within high-rise residential buildings and the impact of recent regulatory updates. Other topics led by the CORGI team include the key steps to electrical compliance - hosted by head of membership and training, Kim Morris.
