Free Carbon Monoxide Awareness training


Following the success of the Gas Safe Charity’s UK wide carbon monoxide (CO) workshop programme in 2017, it’s being expanded for 2018.

Called Think CO, it’s an awareness campaign aimed at organisations which deliver a wide range of services in the homes of vulnerable people.
In 2018, the interactive and engaging sessions will encourage people to share experiences and practices in order to develop a policy of CO awareness for their own organisations, as well as brief people on the sources, signs and symptoms of CO poisoning.  They will highlight the connection between low-level CO poisoning and an increase in risks of falling and dementia which is being recognised increasingly by public health professionals and others.  Each participant will get a training pack to cascade within their organisation; in 2017, this information reached over 300,000 staff and volunteers, leading to many more clients and service users being safer in their homes.

In 2018, there will be fewer, but larger workshops, a total of 10 across the UK. We start in Chesterfield at the end of February and reach Belfast in September

If you would like more information or to book a place, please email thinkco@gassafecharity.org.uk or call Hilary on 07813 977798 or Simon on 07549 956376

NASHiCS is happy to support the programme and the cost to attend is free.
