Carbon Monoxide Poisoning:  A Home Safety Handout  

Download the guide to find out about CO gas and how you can prevent it at home

Are you protected?

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless toxic gas that is produced when fuel is burned incompletely. Meaning any item that can burn carbon-based fuels is a risk in the home - including cookers, fire places, and boilers. 

As there has been a 10% increase in NHS reported incidents of carbon monoxide poisoning - from 2,220 cases in 2014 to 2,430 cases in 2016 - it is of growing importance that people are aware of the dangers of CO, and know how to protect themselves against it. 

Our CO safety guide includes: 

  • What is carbon monoxide poisoning? 
  • Symptoms of CO poisoning 
  • Sources of CO in the home
  • What to look for in a carbon monoxide alarm & where to install
  • What to do in the event of a CO incident
