Gas Safety Trust launches online CO resource

The Gas Safety Trust has launched its Carbon Monoxide (CO) Portal, which is designed to make information about CO more accessible.

The portal has been created to host and signpost data and information relating to carbon monoxide in the UK as recommended in the 2011 All Party Parliamentary Gas Safety Group report Preventing Carbon Monoxide.

It has three main sections. Legislation and Standards includes information on regulations, standards, guidance and codes of practice. Academic References is a searchable reference library of academic papers relating to CO. Data and Documents contains reports and other general information on CO.

Chairman Chris Bielby said: “The Gas Safety Trust is pleased to be launching the first phase of our CO Portal project. Providing access to CO-related information and data is an essential component of our strategy to improve knowledge and understanding of CO. We are delighted to invite researchers, academics and other interested parties to make use of this resource and look forward to developing phase two, a data collection exercise, in the coming months.”

Baroness Finlay, co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group (APPCOG), said: “Comprehensive and easily accessible data and information on CO are vital pieces of the poisoning prevention puzzle. I welcome the launch of the CO Portal, which delivers on key recommendations made in the APPCOG’s 2011 and 2015 parliamentary inquiries.

“Given the often fragmented and disparate nature of where information related to CO is held, the CO Portal is an important step forward in improving knowledge and understanding of this deadly gas.”
