Do you visit people at home? Make sure their gas appliances are safe.

Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas produced by appliances which aren't properly maintained - and you can't see it or smell it.

The Gas Safe Charity is offering a free, on-line Zoom workshop aimed at front line staff and volunteers who visit or work in the homes of vulnerable people. The workshop lasts about an hour and explains the sources, signs and symptoms of high and low level carbon monoxide risks in the home and includes relevant scenarios to explain what steps to take if carbon monoxide poisoning is suspected.
