The fight against carbon monoxide!


Here at Able Skills, we take health & safety very seriously, especially in gas as there are so many opportunities for risks that need to be controlled. We strongly urge that any student completing a Gas course with us applies to the Gas Safe Register! Today we'll be looking at carbon monoxide poisoning, around 50 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning and that figure seems to be increasing year after year! This could be due to the fact that people have more access to appliances in this day and age or it could be an issue with awareness - so we continue to do our bit to raise awareness of this lethal issue.

Get yourself a carbon monoxide alarm such as this one and stay safe!


New Freedom of Information disclosures from UK Fire Services show incidents of poisoning rose from 2450 incidents in 2014 to 3249 in the last 12 months - an increase of 32%! It has been estimated that around 40 million people are at risk because they have no alarm, this is a ridiculous statistic these devices are inexpensive and can be purchased from a number of stores and even on Amazon for as little as £10! These detectors are small and could be the difference between being at risk and being safe...If you suspect that your home is at risk from a gas leak then make sure that there are no naked flames throughout the house, it has come to light that gas engineers often see lit candles in properties that have reported a suspected gas leak!
