HSE: Safety precautions prevent poisoning

28th January 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Companies which implement adequate precautions, such as health and safety signs, can help to reduce the chances of carbon monoxide poisoning, it has been claimed.

Plymouth-based Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspector Helena Allum said that there are still far too many deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning and this could be avoided if preventative measurers are taken.

"If you are living in rented accommodation your landlord has a duty to have any gas appliance that they own regularly serviced by a Gas Safe Register engineer and issue you with a copy of the gas safety certificate following the annual safety check," she said.

Ms Allum added that there are some key symptoms of poisoning and warning signs could help to alert people to this to enhance their safety.

Meanwhile, Judith Hackitt, chair of the HSE, recently said that warning signs can remind people of previous accidents which have taken place and persuade them to operate more safely.ADNFCR-2754-ID-19583239-ADNFCR
