AWARENESS OF CO POISONING – GAS SAFETY WEEK 2017

Gas Safety Week 2017 took place between the 18th and 24th September this year. As with previous years, the objective was to raise awareness of the dangers of poorly maintained gas appliances, which can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

This years Gas Safety Week paid specific focus on raising awareness over the needs for regular maintenance of gas appliances and gas detection in rental properties, and also a push for tighter legislation on CO (Carbon Monoxide) detection. 

The formal parliamentary launch of Gas Safety Week saw cross-party consensus on the need for laws mandating carbon monoxide alarms in new-builds.

A survey of 1,000 people in England and Wales conducted on behalf of the Association of Plumbing & Heating Contractors (APHC) found that 39% of households did not have a CO alarm fitted in their homes. Furthermore 34% of respondents with rooms that contain gas, oil or solid fuel burning appliances did not have a detector fitted. 

7,737 companies, including Charlton & Jenrick signed up and supported Gas Safety Week 2017, which is an improvement compared to last year’s 6,859. As more news and feedback becomes available for this years Gas Safety Week, we will be sure to outline in a later news article.
