Dubbed the “silent killer”, carbon monoxide poisoning is incredibly serious and potentially fatal.
Unfortunately, the NHS reports that over 200 people are left seriously ill by carbon monoxide poisoning, and 50 people are killed by it every year. This deadly gas is created when other fuels such as gas, oil or wood are burnt off, but not burnt fully. Odourless, tasteless and void of colour, the by-product is a harmful poisonous gas that is incredibly difficult to detect.
Because of this, workplaces should have a number of alarms in place to detect any carbon monoxide in the area to avoid employees inhaling it and becoming ill. Legally, an employer is responsible for ensuring the workplace is adequately ventilated and equipped with such alarm systems. If they have failed to do so and you or a loved one has become sick as a result, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline.
