Reducing carbon monoxide poisoning advice

23rd November 2011

The Health Protection Agency is warning people to have their fossil fuel and wood burning appliances such as boilers, heaters and cookers checked by an appropriately registered engineer before the winter sets in.

The HPA says that Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning is a significant risk to people in the UK, particularly in winter, and causes some 50 deaths each year in England and Wales and because they are often caused by faulty fossil fuel and wood burning appliances, they are preventable.
