Carbon monoxide – will you wake up?

Students living in digs are being urged to make sure they aren’t putting their lives in danger by making sure their accommodation has life-saving audible carbon monoxide (CO) alarms fitted.

Every year 15 to 20 people die from carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning in the UK and 234 suffered major injuries last year alone. The Health and Safety Executive is launching a new campaign in the South West to make parents, landlords and students aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide.
