Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week
CO Awareness Week 2021 is taking place this year between the 22nd and 28th November.
Through it’s long standing membership with The All Party Parliamentary Carbon Monoxide Group (APPCOG), HETAS and our sister company Woodsure are passionate about raising awareness of the dangers of carbon monoxide and the safety measures to take.
HETAS has produced a series of carbon monoxide videos for consumers, covering everything from alarm positioning, signs and symptoms to measures to preventing CO exposure. Take a look at our series of videos here.
Sharing details for these videos can be found in the video links on our YouTube channel.
Further guidance on the appropriate positioning of carbon monoxide alarms is also available in HETAS Technical Note 22.
