The corresponding letter was addressed to Vyacheslav Volodin, head of the State Duma, as well as to the leader of the Ministry of Construction, Vladimir Yakushev. According to experts, it is necessary to exclude gas equipment from the personal property of residents, if it is installed inside a house or apartment. The key responsibility for the normal operation of such, its safe use and maintenance should be borne precisely by the gas service. The authors of the appeal are convinced that gas workers should have the right to get into apartments and houses, if necessary, without the permission of the owners. This applies to cases where there is a threat of explosion or other kind of danger.
It is also proposed to involve the employees responsible for checking and instructing the tenants if they did their work in bad faith. Experts are convinced that this can improve the safety of homes.
