  • Carbon Monoxide


    • What is Carbon Monoxide?

      Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a poisonous gas that is produced when fossil fuels - coal, wood, oil and gas, are burnt without adequate air ventilation. Approximately 4,000 people are diagnosed with CO poisoning each year.

      CO is:

      • Colourless
      • Odourless
      • Tasteless

       

      The symptoms of CO poisoning include:

      • Headaches
      • Nausea
      • Tiredness
      • Dizziness
      • Chest and/or stomach pains


      If you experience any of the above symptoms you should seek medical advice straight away.

      Three tips which could save your life:

      1.  Ensure gas appliances are installed, maintained and fixed by Gas Safe registered engineers only, find one in your area at www.GasSafeRegister.co.uk

      2.  Have your gas appliances checked annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Sign up to www.staygassafe.co.uk for a free reminder service
