Gas Safe and RoSPA jointly launch ‘Be Gas Safe’ programme

Gas Safe and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) have launched a carbon monoxide safety website

The aim of the website is to educate and provide advice on the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning, currently responsible for around 50 accidental deaths and 4,000 injuries a year in England and Wales alone.

It’s claimed the website also supports the work that local partners are doing to deliver the Be Gas Safe programme and help their communities understand the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The programme is aiming to provide 10,000 vulnerable families with CO alarms, but the key focus of the three-year programme remains to alert the public about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning, by bringing to surface many causes of CO poisoning that are not well known.
