The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and Gas Safe Charity have brought their carbon monoxide awareness scheme to Northern Ireland.

Entitled Be Gas Safe, the initiative hopes to emphasise the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning while outlining ways that people can prevent the issue, including regular servicing of fuel-burning appliances.

Businesses that do not protect workers against the problem will face strict punishment, as evidenced recently when the Health and Safety Executive prosecuted David McDonald for letting a family use a boiler that released carbon monoxide.

Ita McErlean, home safety manager for RoSPA in Northern Ireland, said: "The Be Gas Safe programme provides organisations with a valuable opportunity to help vulnerable clients gain access to information and advice that has the potential to save lives."

Ms McErlean stressed that it is important for people to be equipped with the knowledge of what carbon monoxide is and how it can be stopped.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801483578-ADNFCR
