As HSE RIDGAS statistics found that ten people died in 2013 from gas related incidents in the UK and 343 injuries were reported, the fourth annual Gas Safety week aims to highlight the dangers of using gas appliances and the importance of carrying out checks at least once a year.
Aico’s involvement demonstrates its commitment to teaching installers, social and private landlords about gas safety products, which if left unchecked can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and CO poisoning.
The company has published a range of support literature and an online CO alarm specification tool to help encourage best practice and ensure that products meet the highest level of safety standards.
With 23 million gas consumers in the UK, Gas Safety Week is a crucial initiative aimed at preventing serious injury or death, providing information to the public on how to ensure that appliances meet industry regulations.
For more information on what CO is, why it is so dangerous and how to detect it, visit the Gas Safety Week page on the Aico website, where details and registration for the Ei208 Alarm competition will be available.
