    The dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning

    In terms of fatalities relating to gas safety, more deaths are caused by carbon monoxide (CO) rather than gas explosions. Rising awareness of the dangers of CO poisoning has led to several initiatives being considered. These include:

    • The fitting of audible CO detection alarms;
    • Improved training for emergency gas service personnel;
    • Redundancy of old open flu appliances;
    • Introduction of the home energy rating scheme; and
    • Raising awareness of CO poisoning symptoms.

    Getting help from a personal injury lawyer in Northleach at Accident Advice Helpline

    Gas explosions are catastrophic events that often cause fatalities, and they can also result in serious injury to nearby neighbours and passersby, too. If you’ve been injured because of a gas explosion in someone else’s nearby property, you will probably be eligible for compensation, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we can provide a personal injury lawyer in Northleach who can help you to make a compensation claim.

    Gas health and safety

    In its natural state, natural gas is a colourless and odourless material. However, from a health and safety point of view, an odour is added to aid detection. Here are a couple of things for which you can look out that could indicate there is an indoor gas leak:

    • An odour similar to rotten eggs; and
    • Strange noises coming from any gas equipment.

    In terms of an outdoor gas leak, warning signs include:

    • Dirt or debris being blown into the air;
    • Wet areas on the ground that exhibit persistence bubbling; and
    • Discoloured vegetation near a gas pipeline.

    If you think you have detected a gas leak, you should remember these important safety tips:

    • Don’t try to turn the gas valve on or off;
    • Don’t activate or deactivate any electrical switches;
    • Do not use any electrical devices;
    • Do not smoke or expose any naked flame; and
    • Do not start any nearby machinery, including cars.

    Estimating how much compensation you could be awarded

    To get an estimate of how much compensation could be awarded for an injury relating to a gas incident, you can use the compensation calculator on our website’s homepage.
