Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in the Domestic Environment

Preventing Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in the Domestic Environment

25th April 2016
2 hours
This panel discussion will explore what risks are posed in the domestic environment in terms of CO safety, building on recommendations made in the APPCOG’s 2015 report Carbon monoxide: from awareness to action, and also taking on board the findings of the Royal College of Physicians and Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health report Every Breath We Take, regarding the health impacts of indoor air pollutants, including carbon monoxide. Ultimately, we are aiming to improve public policy surrounding carbon monoxide safety.  The panel will feature contributions from the Department for Communities and Local Government’s Jane Everton, Professor Paul Harrison who contributed to the RCH & RCPCH report, and Stacey Rodgers, whose 10-year old son tragically lost his life to CO poisoning due to a faulty appliance in a neighbouring property omitting the gas.  To find out more and register, please visit the APPCOG events page.
