To mark this year’s Carbon Monoxide Awareness Month npower has released findings from its annual carbon monoxide research to highlight how at risk the UK could be from CO poisoning. The results show there is a clear disparity between the UK’s actual understanding of what the symptoms are, which appliances can be a cause and also what people should do if they suspect they are suffering from CO poisoning.
The research sheds light on how Britons could be worryingly underprepared to spot cases of CO poisoning. Despite 96% of the UK saying they know CO poisoning can be fatal, less than 5% are actually able to correctly identify the most common symptoms. Take a look below at some of the shocking research results.
This November npower hope that by getting more people to talk about carbon monoxide poisoning, more people will be aware of the symptoms, the potential causes and what to do if there is a CO leak in their home. Ultimately of course this means that they could help to reduce the number of completely preventable deaths each year.
So, I am really excited to announce that npower are going to be giving away a super duper Nest Protect Fire and Smoke Alarm (RRP £109) to one lucky blog reader. All you have to do is answer one simple question and you can enter by clicking below. Good luck!
