According to HVP on July 19, the IGEM and Wales & West Utilities’ one day event ‘Carbon Monoxide: Ignorance can be Fatal’ took place on July 11.
The event saw two hundred representatives from a number of industries and organisations attend, including those from the fire service, medical profession and charities. The aim of the event was to discuss issues in order to tackle carbon monoxide, as well as to encourage innovation, share ideas of best practice and develop new partnerships.
Figures from the medical, regulation and gas industries gave presentations on campaigns to prevent deaths caused by carbon monoxide and detailed case studies of those affected by carbon monoxide poisoning.
The event came after a report by the All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group was published making 17 recommendations to the industry and government to help address the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning throughout the UK.

“It is welcome news that a conference has taken place that highlights the importance of an awareness of carbon monoxide. Adequate awareness is extremely important as the gas is difficult to detect. Homeowners should ensure that gas appliances are maintained and serviced on a regular basis by a Gas Safe Registered engineer who helps ensure that these appliances are working correctly and safely.”
