An International Carbon Monoxide Research Network (ICORN) designed to bring together global expertise and research on better understanding and tackling CO poisoning was launched this week in parliament.
The chairman of the Gas Safety Trust has identified the quality and length of some engineer training mechanisms as a critical issue to be addressed to improve safety in implementing and maintaining gas heating systems.
The Gas Safety Trust (GST) will be providing funding to Liverpool John Moores University for research into the experiences of individuals that have suffered from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning at different levels of exposure.
The Gas Safety Trust has announced funding for new research looking at the impact of low-level carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning on cognitive functions and whether symptoms could be misdiagnosed as dementia in some cases.
The Gas Safety Trust is backing a proof of concept study looking at where the threshold may be for low level exposure to carbon monoxide as part of a broader focus on supporting pioneering research.
Clearer definitions to classify high and low-level exposure to carbon monoxide are among the key requirements for better diagnosing CO poisoning and setting out more effective protection strategies, new research from the Gas Safety Trust (GST) has concluded.
