In the latest gas safety news, the has been a petition calling for TV warnings about carbon monoxide poisoning on the Isle of Wight, see article below. A petition calling for prime time TV warnings about carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning to save lives has been launched by Isle of Wight based campaigner, Stephanie Linda Trotter, OBE. The petition urges the Government to provide warnings against the dangers of the carbon monoxide poisoning. The deadly gas can be emitted from faulty cooking or heating appliances powered by any carbon based fuel (such as gas, coal, wood, oil, diesel, petrol etc.). Responsible for 50 deaths each year It states that less than 2% of CO in the air can kill in between one and three minutes and these deaths and injuries cost the taxpayer £178 million a year. In the UK, carbon monoxide poisoning is linked to around 50 deaths a year and more than 200 people go to hospital with suspected carbon monoxide poisoning. Read the full article here. Other news from around the country, another suspected carbon monoxide leak, read below. Dartmouth fire crews called to suspected carbon monoxide leak FIRE crews in Dartmouth were called on on Tuesday night after a suspected carbon monoxide leak at a property in the town. Crews donned breathing apparatus and using a gas detector to check the property in Lower Street. A fire service spokesman said: “Fortunately no gas was detected and the building was cleared of this danger and handed to a responsible person.” They added: “Carbon monoxide is a gas that is invisible, odourless and tasteless. It is recommended that if you have a room that burns a solid fuel (i.e wood or coal) then you should have a carbon monoxide detector installed, also as gas appliances can emit carbon monoxide it is also encouraged that you should have one fitted in a room that has a gas fires or gas appliances (boiler).” Read more at this link.

Many times injuries and deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning could be avoided if we were to take action and install a carbon monoxide sensing device. However, there are times when our fate is not in our hands but those of professionals. Unfortunately in the article below, the professional in question took actions that resulted in the death of a man. In this instance, recognising the symptoms fast enough may help but sometimes the worst happens all too fast. A builder in his 60s has been given a suspended prison sentence after building work resulted in the death of a business owner in Wandsworth Road. Muhammad Javid Butt, 63, was found slumped against the wall of Taniya Dry Cleaners on October 5 2013. Officers were called to the scene, where they noticed a strong smell of gas inside. They left the drycleaners and Mr Butt, of Wensleydale Avenue, Ilford, to retrieve gas masks from their vehicle. London Fire Brigade crews were called to help move Mr Butt outside before paramedics attempted to resuscitate him. A post-mortem examination gave cause of death as carbon monoxide poisoning. Tests of the property showed that the carbon monoxide levels were 10 times greater than the minimum level required to be toxic to humans. Enquiries revealed the boiler’s external flume, used to ventilate fumes, had been cut back to about 5ft above the ceiling during building works undertaken by 6699 Limited. Builder with the firm Keith ‘Bruno’ Morris’, 66, of Ackland House, Beckenham, admitted to cutting the the pipe to make it safer for the builders to work around. The 66-year-old pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey on Friday, April 29 and was sentenced on Tuesday May 31 to eight months imprisonment, suspended for two years. He must carry out 200 hours of unpaid community work and pay £1,000 in costs. The company pleaded guilty to failure to plan, manage and monitor works, contrary to regulation 13(2) of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 207 and section 33(1)© of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Sentencing for 6699 Limited will take place at the Old Bailey on Thursday, July 28. Read the original post here… Further news stories about carbon monoxide can be found at this feed.
