There have been six deaths from CO from the use of barbecues in the last year, five in or beside tents and one caused by taking a barbecue into a cabin. The inquest of Isabelle Harris has been held and CO from the barbecue was confirmed.

CO-Gas Safety has had its data reviewed and validated by Dr. Carolyn Craggs. This was kindly paid for by the Gas Safe Charity. Dr. Craggs’ report has now been sent to the Gas Safe Charity and we are hopeful that that charity will not consider funding the continuation of our work in collecting, collating and publishing the data. CO-Gas Safety first applied to the Gas Safe Charity for funding for the continuation of the work with regard to the data in September 2010. CO-Gas Safety receives no funding from the Department of Health for the data, only for the poster competition.
Held another successful prize giving event at the House of Lords in January 2012. See poster competition page. Baroness Maddock and Lord Hunt of Kings Heath both gave speeches and so did Denis Kerby of Scotia Gas Networks. About 100 people attended.
We’d like to know how many registered gas installers have Public Liability Insurance (PLI). CO-Gas Safety believes it is in everyone’s interest for registered gas installers to have PLI as it protects your customer and you if things go wrong. However, making PLI mandatory would require a change in the law.
In return for your participation, every completed survey (one per Registered Gas Installer, ie. per business) will be entered into our prize draw to win a KANE455 CPA1 Flue Gas Analyser worth £649 + VAT!
Boaters with solid fuel stoves on their boats have a new source of advice to help avoid the two deadly threats of fire and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, and at the same time, save money on fuel, with the launch of a stove safety portal on the Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) stay-safe website, www.boatsafetyscheme.com/solidfuelstoves.
Pimlico Plumbers founder, Charlie Mullins, is urging others in the trade to follow his lead and back a national campaign aiming to raise awareness for the dangers of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
The entrepreneur recently joined MPs, victims of the lethal gas and primary school pupils at a special reception held at the House of Lords, organised by independent, registered charity CO-Gas Safety.
The charity used the event to officially unveil 15 years of data collected on deaths and injuries sustained due to unintentional CO poisoning. According to the research, over the period 594 people have died as a result of the silent killer.
