BC Safety Authority warns against unsafe gas work by John Lund

British Columbia Safety Authority (BCSA) is calling on homeowners, businesses, building and strata managers in the Shuswap area, particularly in and around Salmon Arm,  who may have had gas work performed by John Lund to contact BCSA.

BCSA has identified numerous instances of Mr. Lund leaving hazardous conditions after working on gas appliances such as furnaces and hot water heaters. He does not possess a valid gas contractor’s license and is not qualified to perform any work related to gas appliances or equipment that is regulated by the BCSA.

“We are asking the public to immediately contact us if you are aware of any work on gas appliances performed by John Lund,” said Wayne Lock, Provincial Gas Safety Manager with BCSA. “Improper work on gas appliances creates risks such as fire or carbon monoxide poisoning which can be fatal.”

BCSA cautioned that other individuals who have no involvement in these events may also be named “John Lund” or a similar name, and this notice is not a reflection of those businesses.

If you have any information regarding work performed by John Lund, please call BCSA at 1-866-566-7233 or email info@safetyauthority.ca  immediately.
